One MobileProjector per Trainer
From Jeff Layne
Project Director, Founder of Videomaker Magazine,
Instructor at California State University, Chico
Matt York had an idea – he wanted to bring technology to the least-developed countries in the world through battery-powered video equipment. His idea has mushroomed into a humanitarian organization that includes 1,500 local trainers in 65 different countries. The staff of One MobileProjector per Trainer travels to isolated, challenging environments to benefit communities by teaching them to produce videos about such subjects as health and hygiene, literacy, and agricultural techniques. York gives three examples of the use of this technology: a literacy program in Ethiopia, Mozambique, and Nepal; family planning education in Guatemala; and hygiene and sanitation principles for Eritrean refugees in Ethiopia.
