The Dialogue
The Dialogue
This is a live outdoor Interactive Talk Show. For the first time on the Liberian Media Landscape, people have the opportunity to speak to their leaders, especially policy makers, about policies that affect their lives. The people and their leaders meet face-to-face here in town halls or just simply open air and impromptu gatherings, and are given the chance to exchange views on critical national and community issues. Deliberations from the forums are recorded and produced into one hour radio and TV programmes for broadcast on 45 media partners radio (both national and community) across Liberia. This is a space for real people-to-people dialogue and debates.


Tomorrow's People
Tomorrow's People
This program focuses on gender and youth issues. Here children and youths are themselves producers and presenters. They are trained in all kinds of electronic media work leading to this production. They go into the field, gather content, compile, script, produce and present with the supervision of our radio and drama producers and trainers. The program targets sensitive issues like education and livelihood. Gender based violence issues are also central here. The program is aired twice weekly for 30 minutes on 45 Monrovia and rural community radio partners. Each program uses a storyline to address child protection, women, children, and youth rights and other issues of concern to children, families and policy makers.
