  2. Establishment of a Services Centre for Production and Training in Intercultural, Bilingual Radio Broadcasting

    By the end of the project, other organizations had expressed interest in undertaking activities that would promote knowledge of the Wuayunaiki languages; and the workshop participants were themselves enthusiastic about producing programmes on indigenous languages and cultures. The project provided training in radio programming technologies to technical personnel, as well as to journalists, who had not had access previously to such training and equipment, with the result being a marked improvement in the quality of programming available to audiences in the project's target area.
  3. Capacity Building of Radio Journalists Working on Gender Violence

    Violence against women in Mexico is widespread and often goes unpunished. In recent years there have been several cases of threats and attacks on media workers who have dared to report on such matters, making it highly challenging for communication media to exercise their fundamental right to freedom of expression. Community radios have the proven potential to give a voice to vulnerable and marginalized groups such as women and indigenous people, however at present, the majority of community radio staff in Mexico lack professional journalist training and expertise in human rights.

  4. Community radio project - Mongolia

    The purpose of this project is to build the capacity of ethnic minorities in Northern 'aimags' of Mongolia to produce and exchange information of local importance in local languages, as well as to establish a permanent communication channel between these communities and the rest of the country. It aims at enhancing the role of the media in promoting multilingualism, cultural diversity and indigenous knowledge exchange. It will focus on two ethnic minority groups that live side by side in the Khövsgöl Lake area: the Tsaatan and the Darkhad.

  5. Training Media Professionals and Workers in Digital Archiving and Management of Media Content

    The core of Barbados' media content (audio and video) relating to national memory is housed in the collections of the Caribbean Broadcasting Corporation and the Barbados Government Information Service. At present, the potential of these collections for national development remains unrealised; much of the material is uncatalogued; access is mainly institutional or non-existent due to fragility or rarity. The collections are also threatened by technological obsolescence as well as chemical and physical degradation.

  6. Strengthening freedom of expression and community radios

    The specific problems that are to be addressed to by the strategies implemented in this project are: The disregard that community radio journalists in Mexico have to face in the course of their action for the defence and practice of the right to information and freedom of expression; and the need to reduce the digital gap in information and knowledge access, and empower journalists with skills related to Internet and digital broadcasting production. This project intends to train journalists working in community radio projects located in indigenous, rural and suburban marginalized zones.

  7. Support for the Publication of the Bilingual Kichwa-Spanish Monthly Newspaper Winay Kawsay

    Ecuador has more than 1000 FM or AM radios. Only 10 of them carry programs in Kichwa. Regarding the written media, there are 45 daily newspapers all in Spanish, with two of them in the Imbabura Province: El Norte and La Verdad. There are no daily nor weekly newspapers in Kichwa language in Ecuador. In this context, the Kichwa Indian population finds it difficult to make its voice heard.

The Foundation also works to promote and maintain a Culture of Reconciliation, Peace and Democracy, through education, freedom of expression and actions directed at diminishing poverty.

  9. Upgrading Skills to Expand the Community Newspaper 'Caprivi Vision'

    In Namibia rural dwellers in the remote areas do not have a platform to present their voices of concerns in a language they understand to those delegated with the responsibility to govern them. However, only few indigenous language newspapers currently exist in Namibia, such as the Caprivi Vision newspaper, which is published in English and Silozi and mainly distributed in the Caprivi region.

  11. Young Power in Social Action and Bangladesh NGO Network for Radio and Communication: Youth Community Multimedia Centre

    Significant awareness about ICTs, media and their combined potential has be raised; activities included orientation programmes, and networking with ICT/media initiatives. Appropriate audio and video equipment has been commissioned and the multimedia facility has been established. A new CMC facility has been completed and internet connectivity is in place. A critical mass of (32) volunteers and key staff with diverse and pro-active local representation has been identified and trained in programming and operation.
  12. Radioteca: Multicultural Platform of Audio

    Commercial radio stations predominate within the Latin America media scene. However, the presence of local and community radios (indigenous, juvenile, scholar, university and peasant) which respond to civil society's interests is growing up. Local and community radios do have a free and pluralistic mission and vision. Nevertheless, the limitation of their own production and insufficient of income make it difficult to disseminate these values, and compel them to a weak and fragmented programming. RADIOTECA intends to enrich and support the programming of local and community radios.

  13. Strengthening innovative and gender inclusive use of community media practices in the Pacific region for peace and security

    The importance of community-access radio in promoting social and community development, basic education, and models of good governance has been widely acknowledged in the international community.

  14. Development of a Mobile Training Unit for Rural Community Television Centres

    The community television channels and community centers of rural audio-visual educational production that have arisen in Bolivia in the last decade are mainly located in the Andean and Eastern regions of the country. These media have been started in order to meet the necessities of the rural populations in these regions and have a social service and educational character. However, these rural TV centers have not been able to overcome the limitation of technical and human capacities and of financial sustainability.
