The EMPOWERS teams are preparing for producing documentary films highlighting the project’s activities in the three countries The aim of each country film is to introduce the approach, ideas, experiences and joint learning by EMPOWERS to solve local water problems and not to campaign for the project.The films will be directed by young film makers who were selected through competition and will be broadcast by local television networks. The films will be shot when scripts have been completed. The film is co-funded by EMPOWERS, IRC and Zero-M project. IRC will compile key issues and images from all three films, into a film that can be used for advocacy. The UK-based Television Trust for the Environment TVE will support the broadcasting of the film. TVE is an independent, non-profit organisation, which promotes global awareness of the environment, development, human rights and health issues through broadcast television and other audio-visual media.

Said …in the communities: “The EMPOWERS project has changed the course of our lives in Masharqa”.
