Clipping HIV/AIDS, Tonga
29 January 2009

MALO E LELEI and greetings to you all!!

My name is Ebonie Fifita from the friendly, south pacific islands of TONGA.

I will be working with our youth organisation - ON THE SPOT- to pull together a team of talented young people and support them in creating a series of creative, informative & educational film clips to battle the ignorance, fear, apathy, discrimination and myths surrounding the HIV/AIDS issue in TONGA. Clips will be for local television and distribution to other HIV/AIDS awareness promotion groups and organisations. As part of the project the team of young people will also be conducting public surveys, meeting with stakeholders and other HIV/AID awareness related organisations, conducting private screenings of clips to asses viewers response and film effectiveness, and working with media professionals to develop their creative skills in using film for change.

We will be working together with Netalia Productions& TMN TV2 as well as with the assistance and guidance from the National Youth Congress, Tonga Family Health association , Fili TOnu Drama group, Ministry of Training Employment Youth and Sports, Leiti Association, Youth Stakeholders Committee, And Others.

It is extremely exciting to receive this funding through YOUTH VISIONING and to hear from all of you about the exciting projects you will be initiating in your own countries.

BIG MALO!!(Thank- you) to you all for your co-operation - enabling us to receive this funding.

Best wishes to you all.

- Ebonie
