Statement of Interests - Alice


I am interested in working on:

Social and citizen media training for women and girls in Haiti (blogging, voice in voice out vocal reporting, twittering)

Figuring out ways to optimize use of dumbphones to improve the lives of Haitian women (in conjuction with Digicel, Twitter, Ushahidi, New Haiti Project, Haiti Rewired and other partners who already work towards that goal in Haiti)

Continued aggregation of content by and for Haitian women as started on the site and in

Improving the online and citizen media presence/output of interested Haitian women's organizations or of organizations that serve Haitian women i.e. training them in setting up and maintaining websites/blogs etc.

Generally amplifying the voices of Haitian women through citizen media platforms that Potofanm might maintain (Global Voices style)

Fundraising for all the above
