Kid Powered Media's Create Program creates clubs of amazing kids who use media, storytelling, the creative arts and a good dose of Bollywood to design and implement community campaigns on health and social issues that are important to them. The Rangmanch Media Club, 16 astonishingly awesome girls from New Delhi, is one such group.
Part of our introductory course in participatory media is having the girls share with us and their community the things they love about it. Because though there are problems, there are also people and things which make it great!
In order to inspire people to make their communities better, first you have to help them see the things that are worth fighting for. And because for the Rangmanch Media Club, this is not a community. It is their home.
