The West Africa Democracy Radio (WADR) is a trans-territorial radio station set up to facilitate the exchange of development information between and among countries of West Africa, including Mauritania, Chad and Cameroon. In the station’s first phase, it targeted mainly the Mano River Union (MRU) countries of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.

An undertaking of the Open Society Initiative for West Africa (OSIWA), WADR is conceived to be the hub for a West African network of public, private and community radio stations; creating an avenue for networking between these radio stations and a channel for dialogue among peoples of the respective countries they serve.

Medeva TV

logo-medeva

In 2001, British filmmaker the late Polly Renton asked the US-based Ford Foundation to sponsor a one-off television training project in Kenya. The idea sprung from the fact that at the time, Kenyan television was made-up of partial local news broadcasts and cheap foreign imports – soap operas and re-runs of old sitcoms and chat shows. She felt Kenyans deserved local programming about their own lives, done in a way that gave them a democratic say in the running of their country.

Ms Renton proposed spending a year training a group of young Kenyans on how to become ethical television reporters, producers, editors, sound and camerapersons, and also help them make a series of ‘factual magazine shows’ about Kenya for Kenyan viewers. The Ford Foundation funded this initiative and helped by Vivid Features – a local production company, 15 trainees underwent training in programme-making. This led to the birth of Media Development in Africa (MEDEVA) in 2001. So far, over 300 young people in Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda have been trained for free in various aspects of TV and Radio production with MEDEVA becoming an established name in independent media productions in East Africa with over three hundred hours on air during prime time.

ANDY

logo_andy

Action Network for the Disabled (ANDY), is a Kenyan Non Governmental Organization formed by and for youth with disabilities. It is duly registered with the Government of Kenya through the NGO Board. ANDY’s work focuses mainly at the grassroot levels where we operate to reach and raise the voices of the often unheard at the national and international levels.

We believe and strongly uphold the fact that disability rights are human rights, there cannot be development in any country if persons with disabilities are still placed on the periphery of the mainstream development processes. ANDY is dedicated to achieving equality, inclusion and empowerment of youth with disability in Kenya. ANDY seeks to mainstream this group into all aspects of daily life – unfortunately yet far from common in Kenyan society.

ANDY is a unique initiative that provides an inspiring environment for people with different types of disabilities – and people without disabilities – to work together. ANDY has no religious or political affiliations and operates on the principles of neutrality, unity, impartiality and inclusivity.

Being a user-led organization, we have developed competency over a period of time through our rights based approaches to development work and the use of the United Nations Convention on the rights of persons with disabilities as a guiding framework. ANDY works in partnership with both local and international organizations that advocate for the rights of persons with disabilities.
