Rising Voices [1] will be launching a microgrant competition next month for digital citizen media projects in the Amazon region which is home to many indigenous communities. Thanks to Avina Americas, FundaciĆ³n Avina, and the Skoll Foundation, we'll be offering this support with ongoing mentorship from the Global Voices [2] community.

Citizen media has played an important part in many cultural, political, social and environmental struggles in the region. See some of our past coverage of Amazon communities on the special coverage page: Forest Focus: Amazon [5].
