Your idea
Will you launch your idea as a business or non-profit?


Country your work focuses on
What will be the impact of your idea? 

"Noticias De Mi Gente" that means “News of My People” monthly provides more than 8,000 Guatemalans, at home and in 84 countries, with articles, interactive radio, television, and photographs that connect them with their hometowns. Stories produced by volunteer journalist “info-activists” are presented with context and intelligence meant to engage readers in productive dialogue on the issues facing their communities. Due the impact it already had in Guatemala, we will expand our communication model to other Latin-America countries, maybe globally.

Who will help you develop your idea? Why are you the one to make this happen?

We are working with a rural area info-activists network, radios network, independent radios and TV-Cable channels. We are also working with a mayan community leaders association and many pro-development rural area community leaders associations and groups in Guatemala and abroad. Recently we have an agreement to work with the Guatemalan Migrants Support National Council.

How much will it cost to launch your idea? (This can be an estimate)

In order to keep growing up and increase our geographical, social and economical impact our budget for Guatemala is about US$350,000.00 per year.
