APSA’s Media Centre gives talented youth from its working areas to learn and improve their skills graphic design, photography, animation and documentary film-making through workshops in handling still/video cameras, script writing, developing storyboards and video editing software. Youth learn to document the realities of their own lives including issues of child labour, child marriage, challenges in access to education, inequitable access to land, housing and water and other community issues, reaching these to a wider audience through pictures and film.
Since 2006, the Media Centre has been collaborating with Adobe Youth Voice, a CSR extension program of Adobe Foundation, enabling young people from slum communities share their experience through audio-visual arts with a wider audience.
The Media Centre also produces posters, promotional material and documentary shorts and has undertaken video editing for various other organizations such as Evangelical Social Action Forum (ESAF), KCRO and FORUT, Norway.
Till date, more than 300 young people have benefited from the Media Centre’s training programs.
