The radio drama follows the daily lives of young South Sudanese as they face unique challenges while learning how to become peacebuilders in their communities. Produced locally by Free Voice South Sudan in collaboration with PeaceTech Lab and the United States Institute of Peace, the series promotes peace and stability by empowering youth to be confident, open-minded, and participatory citizens in a diverse society.</p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-long-text-1"> <div class="field-label">Communication Strategies:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The first series of Sawa Shabab was launched in 2014, and the second series was broadcast in mid-2015. Each series consisted of twenty 15-minute episodes in English and Arabic, which were aired on Radio Miraya, the Catholic Radio Network, Internews community stations, and other local stations in all states of South Sudan. In response to the ongoing violence, which erupted in December 2013, the first series was also produced in Dinka and Nuer languages and broadcast within internally displaced persons (IDP) camps and in conflict-affected areas.</p> <p>The drama series follows the daily lives of four young South Sudanese: Rose, Taban, Winnie, and Richard, four very different characters facing common issues: tribalism, poverty, gender inequity, and insecurity but also issues that affect youth all over the world: school, work, friendships, family, love, and future ambitions. Over the course of the first season, listeners met Rose, a girl who left her rural village with her mother in search of greater opportunities in town. She is determined to pursue her dreams of becoming an actress, despite the hardship of urban life and her mother's traditional values (she wants to see Rose married off before she completes school). The story of Winnie shows her struggles to be to accepted back in her home country after returning from America. Taban, a student who sells eggs after school to support his family, has his own ambitions: to find his father, a profession, and love. With Richard, the son of the Police Commissioner, the listeners see the dangers (and also dark humour) of a young, unqualified, untrained man being given responsibilities he is not capable nor deserving of. Throughout the radio drama, listeners learn how all four characters become peace builders in their communities. </p> <p>Sawa Shabab is based on an educational peacebuilding curriculum designed with local partners to increase knowledge and change the attitudes and behaviours of youth listeners regarding their roles in building peace in South Sudan. The series' curriculum focuses on three main goals, identified by local experts as critical to building peace in South Sudan:</p> <ul> <li>Co-Existence and National Identity: To promote peaceful co-existence and mutual respect among South Sudanese youth from different cultural and tribal orientations.</li> <li>Youth Empowerment and Personal Responsibility: To create the foundations of peacebuilding by empowering South Sudanese youth to be accountable, independent, and participatory citizens of society.</li> <li>Gender: To promote peaceful and democratic growth in society by fostering an understanding of gender equality.</li> </ul> <p>Listeners are invited to share their thoughts and feedback on the characters and storylines and to respond to scripted questions at the end of each episode through text messages and phone calls, which are answered by Sawa Shabab outreach mobilisers.

Produced by Population Media Center (PMC) in collaboration with local partners, the drama is being broadcast in Swahili on 14 community radio stations. Using entertainment-education approaches, the drama weaves together storylines to address issues such as gender equality, education, rape, family planning, vaccines, HIV/AIDS, and nutrition.</p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-long-text-1"> <div class="field-label">Communication Strategies:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The Pambazuko radio drama was designed to drive people to question their own behaviour. In PMC's methodology, "the characters role model different behaviors allowing the audience to observe, hope for specific outcomes, and discuss with their friends and neighbors." Pambazuko is being locally written, and is produced and acted in Swahili. The 14 participating community radio stations are members of the Hirondelle network. <br /></p> <p>The drama features the following storylines:</p> <ul type="square"> <li>Jaribu is a young man who discovers that poverty is a vicious cycle that can tempt people into illegal activities, such as poaching. He is influenced by his friend, Pilipili who is involved in illegal trafficking and is a rapist. Jaribu himself becomes a rapist to avenge the rape of his sister, Feza, who tries to show Jaribu the dangers and immorality of the decisions he is making. </li> <li>Asumani is a very jealous husband who won't even let his wife Sheriya go to the market. When Sheriya gets pregnant, Asumani will not allow her to seek any medical care because he believes in traditional medicine. Sheriya's older sister insists that she be allowed to visit a doctor and eventually the baby is born at home. The baby's low birth weight causes concern, and Sheriya navigates difficult realities to protect her health and the health of her baby.</li> <li>Mawazo is a young 14-year-old boy who lives in Madoa. He loves school, but he must interrupt his studies because he is too poor to continue. Mifano must find a way to feed his mother and sister so he finds work in a mine. Through his experience listeners learn about child labour in the quarries and see the many factors that have an impact on a child's opportunity to receive an education. </li> <li>Machozi is a 24-year-old, married young woman. She has four children that she feeds by growing and selling yams and taro. Her husband, Ayali, is a drunkard and does not help feed or educate the children. Machozi must provide for the family and rely on her daughter Sheila, who is seven years old, to look after the other children when she is absent. The youngest child, Tati, is struck by polio and loses the use of his legs.</li> </ul> <p>The launch of the radio drama was covered through print, radio, and television to promote listenership.

" <br /></p> <p>Comics were chosen as they were found to be effective teaching tools since they require readers to not only passively receive information, but also interact with the text and images to construct meaning.
