Subject: [Vuma Peace] Peace Radio Update
To: Vuma Kenya Peace and Reconciliation Initiative <VKPRI@...
Here is a quick update on our peace radio initiative.
we have contacted KASS FM, EASY FM, Ghetto FM, and Koch FM radio
stations and have extended our support to keep radio peace programs on
We still need contacts at Capital FM, Pamoja FM, Kenyatta University
radio, and SIDAREC. If you have those, please connect with either John
As we support radio programs, here are some items that everyone in
this network can help us with:
1. guest speakers: if we are offering to stations that we can find
guest speakers, we need to start compiling a list so that we can have
people ready to go on air at any time, some from here, but mostly
people on the ground in Kenya. People we need are:
* Leaders of community peace initiatives in Kenya
* Leaders of peace initiatives in the Diaspora
* Concerned citizens of neighboring countries
* Women's groups
* Youth groups
* Religious groups
* Academic scholars
If you can start asking people if they wold agree to talk on the
radio, and if they say yes, send me their name, organization, work
they do, contact information, and language they speak. I will compile
a database so that we can be a resource to the various stations we are
2. Peace Education scripts - we need to get people writing, ideally,
it would be best for people from Kenya to write these scripts. Perhaps
there are some youth organizations that we can train (half a day
workshop) on writing peace messages and communication strategies, and
then we can have a group of people writing for various stations? Any
ideas for youth groups? I can help develop the training materials if
there is a facilitator on the ground to do the training.
Your feedback is important for the succees of this program :)
