UNESCO Regional Office for Eastern Africa is supporting Sauti Ya Maendeleo Resource Centre to carry out a training of Journalists on production of radio programmes and women empowerment in Asembo Bay, Siaya, Kisumu.
The training will attract participation of 15 community radio broadcasters and practitioners working in community radio stations in the region. Programme production teams on women empowerment will be formed to spear head quality program production and to ensure sustainability of the programs even after the project period. Also in the training, participants will be able to share knowledge and define common strategies on how to increase the social impact of the radio programs in key thematic areas of agriculture, health and civic education.
