Zambian Community Radio Project

Description: 
The Education Development Centre (EDC) trained Community Radio Producers to conduct interviews in the local language and setting and edit the story with donated editing equipment. The show was broadcast weekly, and featured a new village each week.  Villages applied to the station for the right to be featured.  The inspiration for the program was that many rural problems can be solved with local solutions, and are often solved in some places but not others.  Still in its early stages, the Zambia Community Radio Project has been warmly received in every community it has visited. Villages are immensely proud of their development projects and are eager to share their successes and lessons learned with their neighboring communities. It is anticipated that the 'Our Village radio' series will be a dynamic facilitator to community interaction and capacity building and a powerful tool in mitigating the impact of HIV/AIDS.
