Description du stage : CENSUDI, a national NGO based in the Upper East Region of Ghana, is currently implementing a pilot Women in Public Life project, which seeks to encourage women to participate more actively at all levels in society. As a part of their communications strategy, CENSUDI and RFD (Radio For Development) have developed this gender advocacy campaign. This multi-media campaign uses a combination of radio, drama, and supplementary printed materials, which seeks to engage both women and men in a discussion about the role of women in public life today. In order to avoid alienating listeners, the programmes and project activities are designed in consultation with the communities themselves, who are encouraged to explore their own notions of gender through debate and personal reflection. To further reinforce this participatory approach, a network of interactive Radio Listening Clubs is being established. The project will have three major outputs: The development and production of a radio series, the establishment of a network of interactive Radio Listening Clubs, and an outreach training programme using Multi-Media Resource Kits.
