Hi pascale! Allow me to thank you first for the brilliant observation and questions plus the wonderful feedback.

When you talk of college news papers it actually left me thinking and gave me news ideas to incorporate in this one. The idea here may seem like something being done somewhere else in the world but in the context of my contry its still fresh coz nothing like it has been done not in colleges or highschools. Only something close i have seen again is a project under oxfam of community assemblies were local communities in rural areas appoint and assembly their representatives to discuss pending issues in their society follow up on promises of the politicians among others of which i plan on partnering with them given the support to kick start this idea.

Looking at the practicle perspective, we actually thought of involving the whole community atlarge whether you know how to read and write or not as long as you are of sound mind and eligible to provide content for the newsletter. All intrested urban slum members with  content will submit it in whether visual, audio or video recorded, hand written etc in a prefered language for better articulation and reviewed by a team of editors and translators from the comunity and finally sorted out for publishing by editing team working with me on this idea and the content that is not published will be archieved pending the weely n monthly publishments for consistency. For the case of distribution we were looking at the same model as that of the high school and colleges in the U.S.A.

Information sharing is symmetrical to literacy so yes i think we can incorporate those ideas to this because thats one of our long term goals to help the school dropouts among other teaching them skills and sharing necessary information.
