Media: a Voice for All: Strengthening Women’s Voice in the Great Lakes

iMedia consultants Dr Mary Myers and Pascal Chirhalwirwa are in the Great Lakes region conducting the final evaluation of a media for social change project implemented by  Search For Common Ground. The project has been supporting women’s media associations and their members in Rwanda, Burundi, DRC, Central African Republic and Congo-Brazzaville over the past two years. iMedia is investigating the extent to which the project has been successful in strengthening capacity and facilitating networking among women journalists, and including women’s voices and gender perspectives in media programming. Here Mary and Pascal do a SWOT analysis of the project with Search staff at the initial planning workshop held in Kigali in early September.
