Rising Voices is pleased to announce the five newest members to join its global community of citizen media grantees . Each of the selected projects will receive microgrants to implement their proposed project to teach others how to use various citizen media tools. This latest competition round resulted in an impressive amount of interest from around the world. In all, Rising Voices received more than 750 applications from more than 90 countries, and it was a difficult decision narrowing down the selection to just five grantee projects. There were many deserving projects with great ideas that addressed specific needs in local underrepresented communities that we were unfortunately unable to fund. The five projects selected from Brazil, India, Greece, Mali, and Guinea-Bissau are diverse and represent four different continents. We think they will add much to our community, please join us in welcoming them. To read the full announcement , please visit the Rising Voices website.
