The Tech Camp is a five-day capacity building workshop designed to bolster the use of digital media and messaging in support of peacebuilding objectives. These focus on the creation of innovative projects and campaigns that combine community-based interventions with tech-driven solutions that alter narratives which promote violence in offline and online communities.
PEACE PROMOTION FELLOWSHIP
The PPF is a 6-month fellowship program for high-performing Tech Camp graduates that will provide ongoing mentorship, a monthly stipend, and technical expertise as they develop and implement innovative messaging projects. Fellows are encouraged to work with other graduates as they develop their community-based and messaging-oriented PTVE projects.
EAI-PH runs two radio programs that amplify messages of peace: the 48-episode “Saranggola” Radio Drama and the 24-episode “OURmindaNOW” Radio Magazine Program. The Listening and Discussion Action Group (LDAG) is a highlight component of this program composed of Community Reporters from all over Mindanao who lead the feedback mechanism of the program and report updates from their communities relating to peace and development.
To strengthen the visibility and local ownership of our mission for peace and development in Mindanao, EAI-PH leads community forums and outreach events intended to open opportunities for policy consultations, peace dialogues, and empowerment sessions which are crucial elements of our generative feedback loop.
The Hackathon is a tech-based public competition that sees individuals form groups to develop, build, and design targeted messaging campaigns and other tech-driven solutions (e.g. platforms, apps, widgets, media content, and community interventions) in response to identified PTVE themes.
