Using Radio to Help Communities Talk

A Ugandan NGO called the Straight Talk Foundation has created a guide to using radio to encourage community dialogue. The manual includes advice on all stages of producing a radio show – from preparing to go into the field, through interviewing, writing a script, and using voice and sound clips. Practical tips on using audio equipment and working with community members are included. The manual can be downloaded here: http://www.straight-talk.or.ug/downloads/Radiocommunitydialogue.pdf .
