About my work:
For the past two years, I created and launched VOICES OF WOMEN WORLDWIDE INC. bringing strong voices to collectively work with the "voiceless" women, young girls, boys and children and those men who support gender equality and female empowerment worldwide. Earlier I worked as a passionate 16/35mm filmmaker turned digital video/HD/3-D producer/director working on diversified subjects on interfaith and spirituality, world religions, leadership role models, etc., informing and educating through multimedia and visual arts.

My first digtal TV program "MISTAKEN IDENTITY: A 9/11 Story" on cultural diversity in America, won three first prizes at three separate American Film Festivals and created the global media event across USA, Canada and the UK to present the film at forums and workshops, selling DVDs to University and school libraries. Since then, my content focus has been on "leadership role models for women and young girls; world religions for the family and younger generation; defining spirituality; and "being the change", producing CSR videos while fundraising for video projects worldwide.

After celebrating the 2nd anniversary of a truly global social multimedia website: VOICES OF WOMEN WORLDWIDE & VOW-TV at http://voicesofwomenworldwide-vowwtv.ning.com which for two years has promoted the "voiceless" ... giving them voices to tell their stories and find solutions to their problems. VOWW numbers 1,170+ members (free and by invitation only) spreading across 82 countries. Today, VOWW-TV has video filmed over 1,000 amazing stories of oridinary grassroots women performing extraordinary projects in their rural and urban communities worldwide. Many young boys and men have also joined VOWW - especially those who respect and believe in the voices of their mothers, sisters, girlfriends, wives, mistresses, grandmothers, etc.

At this stage, VOWW is working with leading experts on education for the 21st century, authors and writers focusing on books and video films (working titles)"WOMEN OF THE MIDDLE EAST AND MUSLIM COMMUNITIES WORLDWIDE" and "WOMAN OF AFRICA". Completing pre-production on "WOMEN WHO DARED ... to become Presidents and Prime Ministers" (1960-2012) accomplanied by books, etc.
Topics on my radar:
Agriculture, Education, Enterprise Development, Environment, Finance and Investment, Governance and Transparency, Health, Inclusive Business Models, Measuring Impact, Nutrition, Partnerships, Peace and Commerce, Technology, Trade, Water, Women and Business, Youth Enterprise
Other Topics on my radar:
Topics of interest on my radar - vocational training of rural youth, especially in producing videos and teaching them to use video to understand what they really need to survive "poverty and hunger." Question computers and electrified sewing machines that takes the youth seeking for jobs in town ? Believe it is better to share their own ideas through vocational training programs and keep them in the villages and not drown in urban poverty ...

Thanks Vinanti..sounds very interesting what you are doing...we are looking into topic of women rights in Africa as with the smallholder farmers we work with, this is a huge issue but very contentious and delicate of course

Cheers

Thanks for your kind words. I would like to learn more about your work on the topic of womens rights on smallholder farms. You are correct it is a huge problem, and has to be sensitively handled.

I am very involved with human rights of women and children, especially after working with a U.S. client who adopted 10-20 "poorest of poor" Muslim villages in Haryana (the most wealthy rural States in India). He had invested over $25 million dollars and my job was research and videotape "incredible changes" accomplished. After some R & D, a broked camera/bad audio I filmed young girl-child (11,12,13 years),with babies on their hips and discovered she considered "motherhood" her human right.

For me,it was a disasterous "cultural shock", as all I saw her as a "baby producing human machine" for the rest of her productive life. Outraged, I edited a 4 min video clip on YouTube - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AfRnmPFSMxE

Thanks for your good efforts on human rights of women and children.  I have worked on women's economic empowerment projects and believe there is a clear synergy between human rights and women's economic empowerment and education. I will contribute actively to dialogue on these issues.

Dear Vinanti,

Thank you for wanting to connect with REAP (Reentry and Preparedness) and learn more.  We are at final stage planning for developing worker-owned enterprises on Native American tribal reservations for people exiting prison or jail while supporting them with family and health services starting with greenhouse manufacturing and local hydroponic food production.  Also, interest in this comprehensive program has been expresses in the Middle East which also has desert locations similar to our Arizona landscape.  Let's stay in touch since developments are reaching conclusion stage and your interests intersect with ours.  Thank you again.

Carol Manetta, REAP

Dear Carol,

Lovely to hear from you in the midst of your final stage planning for developing worker-owned enterprises on Native American tribal reservations for people exiting prison or jail - I have to admit in the past few years I have become very interested in the Native Americans and other indigenous people around the world, i.e. Maori's of New Zealand, etc.

It would be lovely to learning more about your work and I will make it my business to review your website REAP  to learn more ...
