  1. Horytna academy: training program for Egyptian youth

    Traditional media, citizen journalism and community radio have been important in setting the stage for change in Egypt. As the country transitions towards democracy, the media has a higher responsibility to raise awareness on political, social and cultural issues, such as expression of the right to freedom of expression. The massive use of non-professional footage by traditional channels such as Al Jazeera and the fast development of citizen blogs and websites to report on the events has brought an alternative method to hold the government and authorities accountable.

  2. Khorixas Youth Community Radio

    Khorixas, with an estimated population of 68,735 people, is one of the lest developed parts of Namibia. This town and the neighbouring villages receive no daily newspapers and only intermittent radio coverage from one state-owned station. Khorixas therefore lacks a community platform to discuss development and social issues in a pluralistic, accessible and democratic way and is isolated from regional, national and international affairs.

  3. Andean Animation

    Animación Andina is a project to train young animators from Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru to produce animation media, primarily targeting children and youth, using the imagery, cultural values and traditional story telling of Andean cultures. Animación Andina will be proposed to public and private media sectors as an educational media tool that can be used in formal school education as well as through informal television viewing.

  4. Capacity Building and Human Resource Development in a Resource-Limited Island Nation

    While the FSM does have some semblance of a mass media in the form of limited newspapers and international cable television, radio remains the most effective, affordable and accessible media forum for the majority of the population in the FSM, including Yap. Yap has only one government-run radio station, which also operates a free television channel provided to the State government through a cable television agreement with the FSM Telecommunications Corporation.

  5. In-Service Digital Archiving for Media Professionals and Digitization of Audio-Visual Archive of ZIZ Broadcasting Corporation

    While ZBC is a national station, it does not receive any subvention from the government and runs its own affairs. ZIZ TV is however hindered in its attempts to meet audience needs because of outdated equipment (over 15 years old in some cases) and because its library is full of video material (dating back to 20 years) recorded on analogue/VHS tapes, a situation which makes the material largely inaccessible and threatens its very preservation. In addition, media professionals are not sufficiently trained on digital archiving and the related technologies.

    The level of media development in Puntland, Somalia is low due to lack of resources and expertise as well as decades of war. Puntland State University (PSU) is committed to filling this gap and is ready to operationalize its Campus Radio Station. It has established a Media Training and Resource Centre, attained government permission for the radio station and, in 2011, equipment was procured by UNESCO. The station will cover community issues including, governance, rule of law, youth unemployment, environmental conservation, the plight of IDPs, piracy, FGM/C, terrorism and HIV/AIDS.

  7. A training Scheme for Field Investigators at the Mass Communication Research Centre

    A basic pool of trainers was established. The trainees carried out impact analyses and reaction surveys of national scope. For example, one group of trainees provided useful research data for the film Stop AIDS made by MCRC for the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports and the Ministry of Human Resource Development. In general, the immediate objectives of the project were achieved.
  8. Establishment of Umoji Community Radio

    While Mozambique as a whole has a fairly developed media sector, the Manda Wilderness area faces limitations to media coverage. Journalism as a profession does not exist in the area. There are no daily newspapers; no Mozambican Internet or mobile network coverage (only expensive Malawi services); and no media tools to share relevant information (e.g. on health, education and agriculture). As a result, the Manda Wilderness communities have no voice on issues of concern to them.
