Training of Media Partners to Encourage Education of Girls PDF Print

The ‘Educate Girls End Poverty’ project works with media partners to create awareness on the available opportunities for girls’ education and increase the support of education for girls in Somalia.

In March 2015, directors, editors and producers from various radio stations in Mogadishu and Guri Ceel were trained on the girls’ education project, its objectives and how the media can contribute to this. The training was led by Salad Ghedi, CISP’s Accountability and Communication Officer.

The participating radio stations are involved in creation and dissemination public service announcements to educate the communities in their regions.

“We are working to ensure that the journalists develop an adequate understanding of the barriers to girls’ education as reported in the baseline survey,” noted Salad.

With evidence from the survey, the trainer demonstrated the main reasons girls are not taken to school which will form the key themes of the radio campaign through drama and live shows.

With the information given in the training, the radio staff will be more knowledgeable on the issues that hinder education of girls. They will therefore be in a better position to develop messages that will eventually change the attitudes and behaviours of the communities to be more favourable to the education of girls.
