Roli Print

I’ve realized I can and should draw people’s attention to these issues, since making people aware of their rights, educating them to be responsible recipients of these rights, as well as encouraging the practice of these rights can go a long way towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals.

Roli, from India,  is a Youth Journalist through the International Youth Speak Out Project.

Since I was 19 I have tried to educate people by forwarding information on SRHR issues, trying to volunteer for any organization or event connected to the same. I co-directed a few short films for University screening purposes on AIDS/HIV and sexual rights (2006).

I also attempted to document, educate and mobilize the youth around sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) issues by working for the communications sub-committee of the Bali Youth Force on a voluntary basis. I helped design and formulate the youth roadmap for ICAAP, 2009 and also used photography for documenting purposes.

 

At AIDS 2010, I voluntarily contributed to the video stream of PANOS by video recording parts of the youth pre-conference. During the main conference, I acted as a youth reporter. Another important realization for me was that SRHR issues are what I as a communications person can and should draw people’s attention to since making people aware of their rights, educating them to be responsible recipients of these rights as well as encouraging the practice of these rights can go a long way towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals.
