UNESCO is supporting Sauti FM to carry out a capacity building workshop for its community radio practitioners on production of quality programmes on three thematic areas: agriculture, health and women empowerment. The training workshop will bring together 17 participants (8 men and 9 women) in Asembo Bay, Siaya County, Kenya.
The participants will be trained to various ICTs platforms for effective and efficient programming, analysis capacity of the radio, identification of gaps and improvements followed by the training.

The training will include theory, practical exercises and individual and group assignments followed, at the end of the training, by an assessment and evaluation of the participants. This training is part of UNESCOs continued capacity building initiatives under SIDA funded project “Empowering community Radios with ICTs” in Kenya.
