USING MEDIA TO EMPOWER PEOPLE
Radio La Benevolencija / Humanitarian Tools Foundation (Radio
Benevolencija) is a Dutch humanitarian multi-media production NGO that
uses broadcast campaigns, events and grassroots activities to encourage
people to become active bystanders in the face of incitement to violence.
Its campaigns endeavor to use the accumulated experience of victims of
ethnocentric violence who have empowered themselves and reached a peace
with their former tormentors. Using academically researched methodologies,
the organization strives to develop knowledge tools - guides on how to
deal with an array of manipulative pressures that move individuals and
whole societies to commit physical and mental harm. These tools are
presented in media campaigns that use entertainment and education methods
to reach audiences that have experienced , or are in danger of
experiencing violence. A prototype of such a campaign is its African
operation, "Great Lakes Reconciliation Radio" , a regional project that
has been in operation in Rwanda , the Democratic Republic of Congo, and
Burundi since 2003.
