This measure was reported by civil society.
Describe the main features of the measure/initiative: 
The project intersects three key elements in the audiovisual curriculum: digital audiovisual animation, drama and storytelling and vocational training with new technologies and equipment used in the audiovisual digital sector. Young women were able to create short videos by using their smartphone. The training suggested an in-depth, robust training program which, with its methodology of promoting the constant involvement of the trainees with their communities, had a strong impact and is consistent with the level of change aspired to. With the support of: Sabrina Ho
What are the results achieved so far through the implementation of the measure/initiative?:
