Approved budget: 
US$22 660.00

Peruvian community media have become the voice of thousands of isolated or marginalized persons, significantly democratizing this media platform. In an effort to ensure that community communication services grow stronger, expand and improve in a quality manner, ILLA Education and Communication Center is seeking to train women journalists in key tools to navigate on the internet, create a website, use networks, platform 2.0, create an online radio, upload audio and video to cyberspace, manage blogs and create podcasts. Female journalists will also be trained on how to conduct their radio programmes with gender perspectives, to reduce sexist stereotypes in programming content and promote an approach to work based on equality. This project will elicit support from expert organizations from neighbouring countries where the community movement is well developed, in order to apply successful experiences or methodologies from other countries in community media in Peru.
 
The project will result in 50 female journalists and communicators from community radio stations in Peru acquiring skills in using ICTs and knowledge about gender equality to improve media programming and contents, through attending two training workshops lasting four days each. In addition, an online training platform will be set up to establish new sources of guidance in order to multiply the knowledge within the media community.
