Partenariats avec les radios : « Pour toucher le plus grand nombre »

N’Djamena, 22 October 2014

Handshaking, after defining the key objectives of the awareness campaign and sharing opinions. In the capital and in the provinces, the number of partnerships signed between local radio stations and the Outreach Consortium is increasing. Since radio is an information resource accessible to all in Chad, these agreements promise to play a key role in the campaign.

With a smile, the Director of the Mongo community radio station confirms and emphasizes that working with radio stations is “an effective way to reach the greatest number of people.” He has just signed a partnership agreement with MAGI Communications, to implement the awareness program on the Extraordinary African Chambers (EAC). Similar agreements have been signed in the country’s main cities – Sarh, Doba (see picture), Moundou, Bongor and Abéché.

What is the objective? To enable the largest number of Chadians to hear the parties to the proceedings before the EAC, to better understand the functioning of the Chambers and to follow the latest news. In the wake of a first agreement signed with FM Liberté in N’Djamena, Radio Lotikô (Sarh), La Voix du Paysan (Doba), Radio Karuba (Moundou), Terre Nouvelle (Bongor), Mongo community radio and La Voix du Ouaddaï (Abeche) have followed.

First series of six programs

The first six-part series is being produced in French, Sara and Arabic, and it will be broadcasted through this network in the coming months. These partnerships, which reflect the importance of local media, are included in the EAC outreach program conducted by the Consortium in Chad. The involvement of community radios helps disseminate neutral information on a local scale, from the eastern, central portion and western ends of the country.

In Chad, community radio stations help community development. They inform, educate and denounce abuses. They promote behavior change. They involve the public in their programs and they generally have built a trusted relationship with their audience, despite their limited finances. The programs are broadcasted in French, Arabic, and Sara. In areas where other languages prevail, the program will be translated before transmission.
