  1. 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.

  2. Training in communication for the strengthening of democracy and the culture of peace

    The Violeta B. de Chamorro Foundation (FVBCH) is in charge of the execution of this project. The FVBCH is a national and international organization, headquartered in Managua, Nicaragua, and its goal is to contribute to the construction of peace and to facilitate initiatives by the civil society for the poorest populations in Nicaragua. 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.

  3. Development of Online Course in Citizen Journalism for Coverage of the Environment and Economic Development

    In terms of journalism training programs, very few universities offer a degree in the specialty. Journalism courses are usually part of a Social Communication degree. Mid-career training is not part of the culture. Media companies are reluctant to pay, and the journalists are too poorly paid to afford it themselves. This project will train citizen journalists and professional journalists to access, organize and publish information on land use, water resources and development issues.

  4. Training on Access to Information in Bolivia

    The initial training plan was satisfactorily completed in August 2010 in the different cities foreseen, with the attendance of more journalists than expected. With remaining funds, the beneficiary institution managed to organize an additional conference on International Legal Standards on Press Freedom and Freedom of Expression in La Paz on 17 December 2010. Attended by 75 participants, the Conference presented the results of a study of the current Bolivian legal framework.
  5. 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.

  6. Community Television Nadi

    The CTV (a charitable trust) has now been operating for almost 5 years, broadcasting educational and information programmes to a population of 150,000 people in Hindi, Fijian and English languages. The station has trained a group of young volunteers and other community members in TV skills and continues producing topical programming within the community. It has implemented a system whereby funds for the ongoing station maintenance and operation are supported by both the business and private sector of the community.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.

  9. We Are An Invincible Youth

    At present, no project exists in Panama whereby young people are given the means to project their views to a national audience. This project from The State System for Radio and Television (SERTV) and its affiliate CRISOL FM aims to remedy this situation by training young people in high-risk communities of Panama and involving them in the production of programmes about positive change in their communities which will then be aired on two national radio stations.

  10. 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.

  11. Capacity Building of Community Radio Personnel in Bangladesh

    Under this project, the skills and capacity of CR personnel will be increased through a training program, a newsletter and a web portal. The project aims to enable CR personnel to produce and broadcast CR programs, and successfully manage and run CR stations for the rural and marginalized communities. One-hundred and eighty organizations have applied for a CR license. To facilitate the registration and operation process, BNNRC has opened a help desk and set up a Community Radio Academy (CRA). It has been observed that skilled manpower is lacking to run the CR stations.

  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.
