The workshop was conducted by Dr. Onuonga, Fredrick Mariwa and Mary Casiraghi from Community Media Support.

Initially, the trainers assessed the level of understanding of the topics to be trained and identified the capacity gaps among the radio staff.

The training then followed with theoretical and practical components, allowing the trainees to put into practice what they were learning through individual and group assignments or dramatic dialogue.
