[creative-radio] Girls making media in Ghana


Girls making media in Ghana


Sometimes among all the ICT4D hype, we forget about one of the biggest and
oldest ICTs there is: radio. There are all kinds of jobs that the youth can
do at the radio station, including news, marketing, voice, or running the
cafe. Having job skills such as these can begin to give the youth some
experiences that will serve them later in life.

The GMM program began last year with a workshop for 20 of the students on
media skills and gender. Following that the Club received a small media kit
consisting of digital cameras, voice recorders, a radio, a notice board and
Flip cameras. The girls work with 2 advisers and now several boys have also
joined the Club. They conducted a bullying campaign with the goal of
reducing the incidence of bullying by 30%. After the campaign, which
included posters, educational sessions and other outreach, the Senior
Housemaster claimed that bullying had been reduced by 90% compared to the
year before.
