Children after a visit to Grand Bassa County.
PCI Media Impact is excited to share more updates about the progress we have made in Liberia thanks to your wonderful support!
So far in 2014, we brought our efforts in Liberia to the next level to end violence against women and children. PCI Media Impact is proud to be partnering with UNICEF Liberia, the Liberian Ministry of Gender and Development, and the African Network for the Prevention and Protection against Child Abuse and Neglect (ANPPCAN) to help continue our social movement in combating sexual violence in Liberia.
In June 2014, we launched our new program, Let’s Speak Out, attended by governmental officials, artists, media stakeholders, and community members.
We hit the road to counties in Grand Bassa and Bong to reach our target audience with key messages implementing three day county tours. Each tour consisted of two school visits, radio interviews, street promotion, and music concerts. Takun J, alongside Liberian musicians Nasseman, Peaches, and comedian Laugh@Laugh, used songs and comedy to teach communities how to prevent and report sexual violence.
During our first two tours, we reached over 600 students, parents, and school administrators and nearly a thousand people who attended our music concerts. The program was promoted at local radio stations and our artists communicated the cause of Let’s Speak Out during interviews with media stakeholders.
The next set of county tours will begin in September with visits to Grand Gedeh, Nimba, and Lofa!
We hope you stay tuned and continue to support us! For more information and updates, like our Facebook page and visit our website!
