DW Akademie assessment found that local languages facilitate effective transfer of knowledge and skills.
MISA Malawi has organised a four-day Chichewa Radio Skills training for central and southern region community broadcasters. The training will be conducted at Mtolankhani House in Lilongwe from July 11-14.
MISA Malawi will also hold a similar training in Chitumbuka in Mzuzu from July 24-27, 2023.
The vernacular Radio Skills Training (Chichewa and Chitumbuka) is a response to the 2022 DW Akademie journalism training needs assessment. The assessment established that conducting journalism training in a variety of local languages facilitates effective transfer of knowledge and skills, especially for community broadcasters.
We look forward to welcoming 12 participants from 12 Southern and Central Region-based radio stations. The Chichewa training will have the following individuals and stations:
1. Thumbiko Nyirongo – Ndirande FM/Blantyre
2. Precious Kadwala – Nyanthepa/Nsanje
3. Gift Asibu – Umunthu FM/Nkhotakota
4. Nancy Makalande – Radio Lilanguka/Mangochi
5. Gloria Masula – Umoyo/Mangochi
6. Chifundo Gondwe – Maziko Radio/Lilongwe
7. Robert Chandilira – Mtunthama/Lilongwe
8. Sydney Chaima – Nkhoma Synod Radio/Lilongwe
9. Christopher Kamanga – Voice of Livingstonia/Lilongwe
10. Prince Phiri – Hope Radio/Lilongwe
11. Chekha Chipeta – Mlimi Radio/Lilongwe
12. Samson Chalowa – Pentecostal Life (PLFM)/Lilongwe
The Mzuzu training will target 12 community radio broadcasters from the northern region.
These trainings are being conducted with support from DW Akademie, Deutsche Welle’s centre for education, knowledge transfer and media development.
We wish the participants all the best.
