I produce radio shows on independent radio in Colorado and want to start an independent, community radio station run by women in Kyangwali, in Western Uganda. Increasing the status and empowering the young female reporters, the programming will provide information about health, education and family issues to the camp.
With mobile receivers and transmitters, women in the Eastern region of the Democratic Republic of Congo could connect with the radio station in Kyangwali Refugee Camp and beyond to Kampala. Real-time reporting may increase international awareness and enforcement of those who are violent against women in Congo.
Please pass along any information about small grants for solar energy generation or radio transmission equipment. Ideas for small revenue streams at rural refugee camps would also be welcome.
