CITAD Holds Community Sensitization On Radio Drama In 3 N/West States

The Centre for Information Technology and Development (CITAD) in partnership with Save the Children International, under the PLANE WINDOW 3 project supported by Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO), conducted a community sensitization program in over 15 communities across Kaduna, Kano, and Jigawa states.

Some of the communities include Babura, Ajingi, Makoda and Kauru Local Government.

The sensitization program aimed to promote the radio drama series “Hasken Rayuwa” currently airing on KSMC Radio, KADA FM in Kaduna, and Radio Kano.

The program seeks to raise awareness about the importance of education and encourage community members to tune in to the radio program and engage with the themes and issues discussed.

Community leaders, youth groups, children, women groups, and religious leaders were brought together and enlightened about the radio drama series, which focuses on reducing the number of out-of-school children in the community.

The event featured interactive sessions, where community members shared their thoughts and expectations from the radio drama.

The sensitization campaign was conducted by staff from the four local governments, with support from the head office. During the campaign, community members were educated on the objectives and benefits of the radio drama, highlighting its potential to inspire positive change in the community.

The discussion centered around issues such as getting out-of-school children back to school, the dangers of uneducated children in the community, and the importance of enrolling children in school.

Participants expressed enthusiasm for the program and highlighted the consequences of street hawking, especially for the girl-child.

The sensitization campaign successfully raised awareness about the radio drama, generating interest and excitement among community members.

The partnership between CITAD and Save the Children International demonstrates a commitment to reducing the number of out-of-school children in Nigeria, especially in the targeted states of Kaduna, Kano, and Jigawa.
