DarfurLive is a media awareness project that will connect Darfuri refugees to the world through blogging and live video broadcasts.
In March 2008, GroundReport will travel to Darfuri refugee camps in Chad to broadcast DarfurLive, 24/7 news coverage of the Darfur conflict. Founder Rachel Sterne will report live from the ground using the Mogulus streaming platform and satellite broadband technology. The team will train refugees to be effective citizen journalists, reporting on the crisis through their own words and images.
The result will be DarfurLive, a news outlet run and controlled by the refugees themselves--hosted right here on GroundReport.com.
DarfurLive was founded by GroundReport and Mogulus, and is supported by the Save Darfur Coalition and Amnesty International.
