distribute HD handheld cameras (and SD cards and tripods) to organizations who
are willing to film 5-10 advocate voices from their communities and send the
video material to us via SD memory card or to upload the video stories directly
to the Here I Am campaign website. We would like to invite your contacts to
either training session.
2) We will also have a filming booth at the Global Fund Advocacy Network
area at the International AIDS Conference. Our aim is to film at least 50
stories of people living with HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, or malaria, or working
with that population, to share their stories and advocate for continued funding
for the Global Fund. If you are living with HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, or malaria,
or a family member, or a healthcare worker, or an advocate of that community. We
would like to set up a time for your contacts to come to the booth during the
four days of the International Aids Conference to tell their stories.
Thanks for your time and help.
