UNESCO is organizing a training workshop on Financial Planning and Management for 12 participants (8 men and 4 women) from Sauti FM, Mugambo Jwetu FM, Mwanedu FM, Mangelete FM, Bus Media Radio and Mtaani FM. The training aims at building capacities of radios station practitioners to plan and control financial resources; use ICTs in financial planning and management by using internet applications; and also integrate financial principles and values in their day-to-day work. This activity is part of UNESCO’s ongoing capacity building initiatives under its SIDA funded project "Empowering local radios with ICTs" in Kenya.
