Announcing the name for the online community!

Thank you to all who voted for their favorite name in the online community naming contest. The results are in and, the winner is…Barza.

Just as reminder, barza is a Kiswahili word which means “the place where eminent persons in a village met under a tree to talk and sort out questions concerning the community. Barza is a symbol of unity and reconciliation. Without discrimination, members of the online community are now part of one worldwide barza.”

A big thank you goes out to Modeste Shabani Bin Sweni and Mutere Kifara , from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, who both suggested  Barza as a name.

The online community site is currently in development. In the coming month, we will be contacting those who mentioned they were interested in testing the site. If you haven’t yet contacted us to register your interest in testing the site, please contact nbassily@farmradio.org.
