MADI is involving Children in media through a local Radio Station in Kumi; Continental FM.The children are empowered to speak out for their rights and to advocate for issues affecting their communities, especially in the area of Environment conservation, and HIV/AIDS. The radio covers Eastern Uganda, with a listnership of more than 70,000 people, and the children are live every saturday for 2 hours, from 9:00 – 11 AM. This is surely a great way to reachout communicative messages accross the community, for development.
It was such an inspiration to have the MADI President; Funwi Tita visit the studio yesterday to see and hear for himself the children talking live about Environment and advising the listeners to be very concerned to protect the environment. In his own words, Funwi testified, “This is a very good program for the empowerment of the children to build their confidence and to make them agents of change”
Tita also addressed the listeners and helped to re-emphasise the goals of MADI and its mission of “Changing the World One person at a Time”.
Thank you Funwi for helping us to mentor these children
