Community Development Media

It is a proven fact that the concept of community journalism has for some time now preoccupied the centre stage of new developmental innovations since the age of information. Letsema Centre have taken the challenge of actively becoming part of ensuring that packaging, accessing, disseminating, and using public or private information are properly used to promote human rights towards creating truly democratic and well-informed developmental societies.

Project Details

Young people participating in the LAPA project are also trained and equipped with basic media skills to compile and produce school newsletters. Participants are challenged to conceptualise, design and publish a media product completely based on their own work. The publication is aimed at enriching the school's media culture as well as establishing school newsletters as a forum for expression and communication in South African schools.
Furthermore, Letsema Centre is currently also running the school newsletter programme as standalone-project.
