Programs

Women's and Girls' Empowerment Since our inception, Equal Access has been committed to empowering girls and women by providing them critical information and education. Through our trusted radio programs, listening groups, and leadership trainings, women in the developing world are gaining new knowledge of their rights and claiming their inherent power and dignity. Covering a wide range of issues from women's rights to gender-based violence to child marriage, our programs are helping millions of women and girls transform their lives and their communities every day. Youth Life Skills & Livelihoods Serving at-risk youth subject to weak governments, dysfunctional education systems, and a lack of employment opportunities, our youth life skills and livelihoods methodology addresses the root challenges youth face and provides education on 10 vital life skills. Recognizing youth for their enormous potential, our participatory youth for youth media programs build self-esteem, provide livelihoods training and empower youth to become voices for change in their communities. Human Rights Our dynamic media and community engagement initiatives provide essential knowledge of basic human rights and how to protect them. Modeling tolerance and respect by emphasizing listening and dialogue, local solutions, and direct access to support services, the most marginalized communities are not only heard, but equipped with the training necessary to protect their human rights. Civic Participation & Governance Our civic engagement programs help create a more informed and engaged citizenry. We provide marginalized communities with civic education and the skills they need to demand accountability of their governments and to participate more fully in shaping public policy. We also combine our media programming with public forums and targeted trainings to build the capacity of community leaders and government officials in order to be more responsive to their constituents. Agriculture & Economic Development With more than half of the workforce in developing countries working in agriculture, it is essential to provide information to farmers- a majority which are women- on sustainable agricultural practices. Through informative media programs that provide access to industry experts and best practices, we are educating farmers and local entrepreneurs on how to run success farms and small to medium enterprises (SME), fueling sustainable economic development in local communities. Health Our popular radio and TV dramas and chat shows combined with mobile SMS, street theater performances, and community outreach activities provide vital information and education on HIV/AIDS, malaria, maternal and child health, family planning, nutrition, and sanitation- supporting communities to protect and advance their health and well being.
