The Critical Role of Media in Training CHHRPs during the Covid-19 Pandemic
By Lancer Wao - Communications Officer
Media outreach at Minto FM, Kenya
Dear Friend and Partner
We hope you are fine and safe. It is a tough time. We would like to remind you that we are strong, resilient, and will come out of this stronger. We hope you and your loved ones are keeping safe. We are humbled by your support. It makes our community a better place each day.
The pandemic adds to the endless list of the problems our community currently deals with. The restrictions on movements enforced through the partial lockdown in Kenya has made it challenging for CHHRPs to hold advocacy activities on the ground. Luckily, it is also the time we have apprehended how the media can come in handy in creating awareness on the issues affecting our society. Therefore, during this period, we have been empowering the masses with skills and knowledge on how to end FGM, various forms of GBV, create awareness on how to stop the spread of Corona Virus, and promoting children’s rights. Also, we have employed equally effective social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter to run campaigns targeting the same topic areas. We are happy to report that we have received positive outcomes from the platforms. We have reached at least 40,000 people nation-wide through radio and over 500 through our social media platforms.The community members have been responding positively to the messages and even asking how they can continue to be champions of change while obeying the measures input by the government of Kenya to control the spread of Corona.
Dear partner, you have been so kind and generous to our community. You have given us hope that change is possible. We ask you not to relent. We need your support on the journey to train more CHHRPs through alternative and effective methods. Please consider sharing our work with your close friends and families so that they can see the positive impact you are making in Kenya. Above all, stay Safe.
