Why Radio Distance Learning?

 

One Community provides health and social services to its priority audiences throughlow-literate volunteers called Community Resource Persons (CRPs), who are recruited, trained anddeployed in all 7-program districts. CRPs need ongoing knowledge and skills building, as well as recognition and acceptance by the communities they serve.

 

While One Community staff are able toprovide some one-on-one support to over 2,700 CRPs, their numbers and geographic spread make

this support inadequate. One Community developed and broadcast a radio distance learning (RDL) program, Umoyo Wabwino, targeted primarily at CRPs to ensure that they receive ongoing knowledge and skills building support in a standardized manner. In addition to solving the problem of numbers and spread, the RDL reinforced and enhanced the work CRPs did and increased their standing and acceptance within their communities as resource persons.

    There is no single solution but tons of options - like I said at the start,
    there's no hard and quick manual which states into the idea methods
    to all your issues. Now in the event that you pose a particular problem to some panel of experts, you're certain to
    receive many diverse opinions and options at yield. This will turnout to be vexing.
