UNESCO Regional Office for Eastern Africa is supporting Sauti Ya Maendeleo Resource Centre to carry out a training of journalists on the role of correspondents to feed local news and collect testimonies in Asembo Bay, Siaya, Kisumu. 15 community radio broadcasters and practitioners working in community radio stations in the region will participate in the training.
