My name is Samm Marshall from Hyde Park. Social TV an online multimedia news channel needs financial support to continue telling #socialchangestories.
Social TV (www.social-tv.co.za) is a South African online multimedia news channel, which is five years old and focuses on corporate social responsibility (CSR), corporate social investment (CSI), shared value and sustainable development. Our mandate is to drive social cohesion and share good news stories but inspire hope and societal change.
Over the years our news agency has evolved to create opportunities for young people and journalism graduates so that they get work related experience and training to further their careers. We are slowly venturing into learnership opportunities for students who have a passion for media.
Social TV needs financial support to continue telling these #socialchangestories. We also see ourselves as a platform to help companies and organizations to identify collaborative opportunities.
We are slowly being recognized for playing a vital role in telling these amazing stories and wish to continue doing so.
We need to raise the funds by September 2019.
Funds raised will be used to:
Pay salaries to journalism and media interns
Cover transport and accommodation costs when the journalists go in pursuit of stories
Funds raised will enable us to create opportunities for young people and journalism graduates so that they get work-related experience and training to further their careers, and venture into learnership opportunities for students who have a passion for media so that we continue telling #socialchangestories.
Funds will be paid into the Social TV bank account from where it will be managed.
