This small Internews project worked to establish an emergency multi-confessional newsroom and radio in Bambari in coordination with local community actors and leaders to cater to the population’s urgent information needs; provide humanitarian agencies and NGOs with a medium to broadcast peace, social cohesion, protection and hygiene/health messages; and encourage the return to normality by creating channels of communication between all communities and actors on the ground. The project also worked to build a relay for Bouar’s Radio Siriri in the city of Bozoum, to provide the local population with an increased access to information, including conflict-sensitive one, and enable the stories of Bozoum to reach a national audience through the training and mentoring of local correspondents who will produce news for the Réseau des Journalistes pour les Droits de l’Homme. This project was funded by the Common Humanitarian Fund.
