UNESCO And Some UN Agencies Visits A Community Radio In Sa’a

Officials of four UN agencies in Cameroon have paid a working visit to M’mali community radio in Sa’a, Lekie division of the Centre region.

The officials from UNESCO, UNAIDS, UNICEF and UNFPA traveled to explore the opportunities that the Network of UNESCO’s Community radios would offer to each UN agency in Cameroon in the execution of their missions in different areas of development.

Since 2014, UNESCO has been supporting the Cameroonian Government in setting up the community radio project which contributes to the development of communities through radio stations. This project implemented by the government and assisted by its partners will last 96 months.

The visit to M’mali community radio in Sa’a, Lekie division of the Centre region enabled representatives of the the UN agencies present to know more about this radio and its challenges in terms of technical support for production and sustainability and how they can help.

A good number of problems were raised by the management committee of the radio:
– The electricity supply is not stable
– Lack of ressources
– Lack of technical Equipments
– inadequate Financial Means etc.

UNESCO’s representative for Cameroon Salah Khaled congratulated the radio for its programs aimed at educating the population and developing the area and he exhorted them to continue in that spirit.

Resolutions

– They will train staff of the community radio including the managers, Journalists, animators, technicians to be more professional and come up with good programs geared towards educating, sensitizing and developing the area.

– Provide the radio with a solar system to solve energy problems.

– Assist them financially for the management of the radio.

– Create a follow-up Unit
