25 Jun 2014 Empowering Women Volunteers to become active in Community Radio in Jordan
In Jordan women are deprived of some of their basic rights. Empowering them to gain knowledge and skills in community radio is a means of bringing about social change. The project provided relevant content in Arabic by enabling audiovisual workshops, and making available information in Arabic that will empower marginalized women in the Jordan Valley to become active in community radio. An existing online radio station and networking website act as repositories of information and good practices shared by fellow practitioners.
The project translated manuals by women and people living with disabilities; disseminated a user-friendly manual; enabled online audiovisual workshops on community radio; conducted 10 hands-on workshops; and placed all materials online for other users in the region.
