Digital Storytelling for Evidence-informed Advocacy

Project Details

Three people are in a living room. The screen of  a video camera is in the corner of the image. A dark haired man leans against a pale wall he is talking to a woman sitting on a couch. A second woman sits on the titled floor. The women wear headscarfs

Advocacy is central to the work of Organisations of People with Disabilities (OPDs), but they are not always equipped to appropriately collect, apply, and communicate evidence in their work. This limits uptake and impact of advocacy efforts.

In this project we will train Fellows from four Indonesian OPDs to develop digital stories for  evidence-informed advocacy. One group will also be training to provide ongoing training to other OPDs in their network.

Trainees will return to their home districts in Indonesia with the skills to create digital stories to increase the effectiveness of advocacy for disability inclusion.
