XTREMEWOOD® will facilitate a range of broad but interrelated interventions that respond to the Media education and Technology studies in the Northern Region. Northern Uganda has been a vulnerable population right from the time of Holy Spirit Movement of Alice Lakwena then up to Joseph Kony and his Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) outfit who devastated the region. We argue that unattended past traumas are hindering the development of Media and Technology Industry in the Region.To respond to these problems, we propose to facilitate the education sector by opening a training centre for everyone living in the Region and Countrywide.
Furthermore, the proposed intervention model will aim to support everyone in the region to jump-start their career in the film and television industry, identifying potential trigger points and planning the most appropriate courses of action to undertake afterwards.
This approach is informed by our theory of change, which is built on the hypothesis that if the region support structures are rejuvenated and students supported to overcome past traumas, and to improve coping and reduce economic hardships then the Northern region will regain their agency, enjoy better social functioning and be able to coexist, exercise tolerance and live in harmony.
Tuition fees will be charged at a relatively fare rate, both per semester and short courses, for example. Most of the fees paid in will be used for the institute administration and maintenance.
Estimated growth first year.
By the end of every course, we anticipate releasing over 500 highly experienced media students to enable them benefit from multiple interventions and skills attained from us.
To establish a daily publishing News Paper, Television station, Radio Station and satellite-based content distribution in the City of Gulu ahead of the year(s) to come.
