On her first trip to the west of Cote d’Ivoire, Chargé d’Affaires Katherine Brucker visited two community radios that are partners in the Radio Synergie project. Chargé Brucker visited with Radio Tchrato in Daloa and Radio Man FM in Man to discuss the objectives of her trip, including visits to USG-funded projects in the health and security sectors, and to encourage the radios to produce programs for the content –sharing platform that connects them to a network of 50 community radios nationwide. Meanwhile in Abidjan, Public Affairs Section staff visited six community radios to conduct outreach, monitoring and evaluation. The site visits provided an opportunity to find out from the radios themselves how the project is going, as well as discussing successes and challenges. During the visits, we conducted interviews to inform listeners about Radio Synergie and to highlight how the U.S. Embassy supports community radios, emphasizing their important role in upcoming municipal elections.
