i ACT: Our Plan

Chris and I have been talking about he 21 days and the stories we want to capture and share. This is what our expectations are, and we fully know that our plans could be completely changed by the reality on the ground.

The story of the 21 days will be divided into three stories, which will all be connected. Taking the first three days as an example, it would go something like this:

Day 1: Our Travel Log. Here we take you along with us and show you what we go through to get iACT on the web, covering the result of the crisis in Darfur.

Day 2: The Victims’ Story. Here we interview the people of Darfur and have them tell us where they’ve been, where they are, and where they hope to go.

Day 3: Life in the Camps. Here we bring you the experience of living and working in the camps. We follow refugees in their daily lives, and we show you the efforts of the many aid workers that provide life saving services every day.

Then we would repeat that sequence through the 21 days. These are our own expectations for ourselves, but we will be ready to adapt to the actual circumstances we encounter.

Gabriel co-founded Stop Genocide Now in 2005, which gave birth to i-ACT in 2009.

He became involved in the situation in Darfur out of a sense of personal responsibility. He believes the power of community and compassion, combined with personal empowerment, can bring about meaningful change.

    Hey Gabriel,
    We (at the mount) are all patiently awaiting your first day of images, but in the mean time it’s great to follow along on the journey. I’m so glad we had time to connect with you one more time before your trip. I’m sending many good thoughts your way…
    Did you remember to pack that compass just in case?

    :) thanks Jess. Our sat. modem has a compass, since we have to know which way to point it, so yes, we do have a compass. I hope we don’t have to use it because we got lost!
