Using community radio to heal after Kony’s war

Mega FM is a radio station in Gulu, northern Uganda. Since its establishment in 2002, Mega FM has made valuable contributions to stopping the conflict in northern Uganda, and to the ongoing healing process for northern communities.

Grace Amito produces the station’s farming programs. Grace has an educational background in conflict resolution, a background she put to good use at Mega FM. Grace was the winner of the 2010 George Atkins Communication Award, presented annually by Farm Radio International to recognize rural radio broadcasters for their outstanding contribution to food security and poverty reduction.

A recent article describes how Mega FM has helped to heal its community after more than two decades of conflict and atrocities in the fight between Joseph Kony’s Lord’s Resistance Army and Ugandan government troops.
