Participants at the training

UNESCO will support Mang’elete community radio to carry out a 2 day training workshop on raising capacity to produce radio programmes in Mtito Andei, Kenya. The training will attract participation of 120 community members and correspondents drawn from the local community.

It aims at equipping the correspondents with knowledge and skills that will enable then to produce radio programmes that can be aired at the radio station. The training comes in timely as it will be preceded by a one month radio programme on environmental conservation set to begin late April 2014. This radio programme aims at educating mang’elete community members on the dangers of deforestation thus help curb the habit of cutting down trees for use in making wood carvings, fire wood, and charcoal. The programme is aimed to bring the community members and the local leaders together on round table discussions to analyze the root cause of this habit and ways to reduce it.

Radio Mang’elete Manangement committee members will be holding two public barazas and meet the people meetings to sensitize the community on dangers caused by deforestation. This training is part of UNESCO’s ongoing initiative of building capacities of community radios in Kenya under the ongoing SIDA project “Empowering Community radio’s with ICTs.”
