This is an exciting time for the Kujali Project. Wednesday, 15 September 2010 the Kujali Project Home Based Healthcare is introducing Home Based Carers from the Athlone YMCA to Social Media. The Reconstructed Living Lab (RLabs) will be providing training to the caregivers and NGOs. The training will start with an Introduction to Story Telling and New Media. The overall objective is to generate stories of hope for all who can relate to the situations these caregivers experience every day in the form of blogging.
One of the Kujali team members wrote in their blog post: “Not only will this blog help citizens, caregivers and NGOs learn about what is happening in other communities, but it can serve as a platform for educational/ training resources to be delivered to the people in need was proposed that a blog be created for the sharing of the stories of the caregivers to others and amongst themselves.”
During the Social Media training the caregivers and community health care workers will be trained in: New Media, Blogging, Social Media Tools and Caregiver 2.0.
