Sawa Youth Reporters In Uganda Produce Their First Videos

After just a month of training in basic video production, social media, and community engagement skills, five Ugandan Sawa Youth Reporters have created their very own short videos profiling local Leaders’ solutions for extreme poverty. The videos will be shared with surrounding impoverished communities in an effort to share valuable knowledge, enable proven solutions to be replicated and provide potential solutions to poverty-related issues.

Youth Reporters Judge and Veronica created two short films about the African Community Center for Social Sustainability (ACCESS), an organization that Sawa Leader, Robert Kalyesubula founded.

In Judge’s video, Dr. Ssewanyana James, the Director of the Nakesake Lifecare Centre and co-founder of ACCESS, speaks with 15 year old HIV-afflicted Kawoy Eliah about his medical needs. The Centre provides much-needed counseling, treatment and medical assistance to help overcome his challenges.

Veronica’s video depicts community health day. With the help of volunteers, ACCESS provides free health care to the many Ugandans in desperate need and also teaches community health volunteers how to educate their communities about health-related concerns.
