Lebanese Voices is a project in progress, a online social media network, that targets to connect individuals of the Lebanese community.
It physically is a platform, a stage, were all these voices of change come together to orchestrate a difference in our lives. I want to connect the thought to the action. The Hope of change to the Form of it.
The idea is to create a place were individuals can join in, to share their concerns about their community, and realize that they are not alone in their hardship, meet others that share their same concerns, collaborate, share, discuss and support each other, and hopefully be able to create a difference in the real physical community. To Change.
In this attempt, it is important to acknowledge that there already are NGOs (Non Governmental Organizations) that have been established in attempt to address various concerns of the Lebanese community, and therefore, individuals can join these organizations, take part of their activities, events and support them.
Lebanese Voices, at the end is merely a platform, and the real value of it comes from participation and involvement. It can only become what the community makes it.
The project is still in prototype phase, due to my lack of coding skills, but hopefully, it will be available in the near future. Meanwhile in the attempt to create the project it would be fair to start participating and creating conversations and changes with whatever mediums are available. That’s why Lebanese Voices is available here to initiate the change.
Part of the project proposal:
“I propose a social media network, that connects grass root efforts to thepeople to be able to create a change, promote their ideologies and thoughts,as well as gain support for their efforts. The system works similar to Facebook,which i ﬁnd to be the most effective and efﬁcient of most social media networks,but its main purpose is to educate and empower individuals in our community. Aplatform that connects people that want to change things in their society and helpthem achieve that. It aims to facilitate communication between individuals in theregion, to discuss the things they feel need to change, and create groups that canact together to create these changes, if there aren’t efforts already available inthat do so. “
