Lira, Uganda – Joined Rising Voices in 2014

commonuganda1Community radio plays a vital role in communicating essential information in Lira, Uganda. The Theatre Technology House has been creating radio soaps to educate local listeners with public service announcements. This new project is adding a digital element to their existing work collaborating with Radio Wa. This new soap created by a team of community actors is discussing the upcoming election process and how to choose one's ideal candidate. The radio drama is being shared as an audio podcast and shared over social networks where listeners abroad can join the discussion and debate.
