Support A Village
One year of outreach
Although Equal Access’ radio programs deliver valuable information on education and social services, they alone cannot ensure these projects meet the needs of local communities and achieve substantial impacts on the population. In order to accomplish positive, long-term impact, it is imperative to directly involve the communities in discussion.
One year of outreach to a village supports a trained facilitator and promotes active community participation around Equal Access action programs. The outreach network is composed of non-governmental and community-based organizations that have established a presence in rural communities and are familiar with local needs. The listening and discussion groups help identify development challenges in each community and seek solutions together. With community participants in these discussion groups outreach staff understands grassroots needs and provide valuable feedback to the content team for setting the future program directions.
