By utilizing an Open Source philosophy including the use of OERs (Open Educational Resources), FOSS / open source software and open technologies, KVA aims to build local capacity and community empowerment through the power of film and media production. As such KVA’s aim is primarily two-fold:

1. skills training and professional capacity building in IT and media production
2. advancing the ideals of securing a vibrant open civil society in South Sudan

KVA current course load touches upon a diverse range of topics related to technology, design and media production including:

  • Basic computer skills
  • Software training
  • Cinematography
  • Photography
  • Web design
  • Digital computer graphics
  • Creative writing
  • Sound and video editing

But in order to be truly successful, and sustain its independence, express its cultural values and spread their open culture philosophy the KVA now needs real support and partners that share their vision by, for example:

  • enabling professional guest mentors on a regular basis
  • providing up-to-date
  • equipment and technology
  • facilitating access to quality educational resources
  • helping pay staff and cover administrative, travel and location costs
