|In a village in Botswana, a blogger links to videos where people can tell their own stories to the world without a reporter as intermediary. If so moved, viewers can donate to the village directly – there is a button right on the page. Flickr photos show more about the community. I first came across the Nata village blog on the Have Fun – Do Good site.These are exciting and important examples of how blogs can expand media pluralism, telling the stories that go under-reported in the news.
Nata is toward the North-East of Botswana, close to the border of Zimbabwe.
Nearly 50% of the pregnant women there are HIV positive, and the country has the second-highest HIV rate in Africa.
