Interview with Ector Diogenes Cassamá

  • 0:03 - 0:06
    My name is Ector Diogenes Cassamá
  • 0:06 - 0:08
    I am the coordinator of the Cultural Group Netos de Bandim
  • 0:08 - 0:17
    which is AMIC's partner in this project Eyes and Voices of the Youth of Bandim and Enterramento
  • 0:17 - 0:20
    Currently, I am also the coordinator of the project
  • 0:20 - 0:28
    and our project has the goal to train the youth in communication using the internet
  • 0:28 - 0:37
    Currently, we have already provided training to the youth in the technical area and information collection for the community
  • 0:37 - 0:43
    and also we have provided training in the use of digital cameras
  • 0:43 - 0:49
    the second phase is for the youth to go out into the community and take photos of daily life
  • 0:49 - 0:53
    related to some problem that they may identify in the community, we are going to organize
  • 0:53 - 0:57
    a generation gathering of elderly, youth, and children of the neighborhood
  • 0:57 - 1:03
    to discuss these problems and all of these will be recorded
  • 1:03 - 1:09
    and published on our blogs, which are already created
  • 1:09 - 1:15
    with the name "Bairro Bandim" (Neighborhood Bandim) and also the blog of Enterramento
  • 1:15 - 1:17
    "Bairro Enterramento" (Neighborhood Enterramento)
  • 1:17 - 1:26
    Anyway, what we are doing is to make known the importance and the richness of Guinea-Bissau
  • 1:26 - 1:30
    and the positive aspects of the neighborhoods where the project is taking place.
  • 1:30 - 1:35
    In those neighborhoods, the group Netos de Bandim is already implementing the project
  • 1:35 - 1:39
    and in the neighborhood of Enterramento, the cultural group Enterramento Unido
  • 1:39 - 1:42
    is responsible for implementing the project.
  • 1:42 - 1:49
    And this project, as I was saying, AMIC (Association of the Friends of Children) is the partner.
  • 1:49 - 1:51
    For the country, it is something new
  • 1:51 - 1:59
    and the youth and children are not used to communicating via internet
  • 1:59 - 2:04
    This project will innovate and help the community to be able to communicate
  • 2:04 - 2:07
    with the outside world.
