Learning While Playing Update

From its inception in 2004, Learning While Playing has provided rural Nepali children and families with crucial information on Early Childhood Development (ECD). Learning While Playing discusses important issues such as proper nutrition, school readiness, health check-ups, proper infant care and the importance of parental involvement.

A 2006 questionnaire found that 60 percent of listeners believed the program helped their understanding of the importance of ECD and increased their knowledge of proper child rearing and healthy livelihoods. Because of our integrated feed-back loop the themes on the show adapt to meet the needs of local communities.

Support for Learning While Playing ensures that rural parents and children across Nepal have access to the important tools for happy, healthy childhoods.

Afghan Radio and Outreach project Update

Making significant progress over the past several months in Afghanistan we improved outreach to rural women strengthening the key messages highlighted in our radio drama and hired a Women’s Programming Manager to establish and train women’s facilitated listening groups. In just five weeks, we established nine women’s outreach groups with 267 women in Bamiyan, Kabul, Kapisa and Panjshir. In addition, we expanded the broadcasting network for our original human rights and Voices from the Field drama series to include a partnership with 22 local FM stations across Afghanistan, ensuring our drama series is broadcast to urban and surrounding semi-urban populations.

“There are changes in the village after the training. We learned about human rights and about the rights of women.” -Female Afghan listening group participant
