Parkari Audio Visual Project (PAVP)

    The majority of the Parkari community is illiterate and lives in desert and rural areas. Consequently, the Parkari Audio Visual Project (PAVP) produces audio cassettes in mother tongue to address the needs and interests of both literates and illiterates.

    These cassettes cover human rights, cultural, educational, health and religious topics, and include stories, drama, poetry and songs.

    PAVP staff also travel to isolated villages to identify members of the community who have specific gifts in music, storytelling, poetry or song. By recording the voices of these people on cassette, PAVP helps to preserve for posterity the rich heritage of Parkari oral literature, and enables members of the whole community to appreciate and enjoy their traditions and culture.
