Interviewing the community.web.jpg A 3 day workshop was carried out at !aH from 18th June 2013 to 20th June 2013 to provide training on editorial, programming, monitoring, gender focus and introduction to ICTs to 6 participants (4 women and 2 men) from the recently added !aH Radio station in Tsumkwe, Namibia. The trainer was Mr. Khumbulani M. Ndlovu, station manager of base FM Radio assisted by Arantxa Mandiola Lopez, the communication and information sector assistant programme specialist, UNESCO Windhoek.
Objectives of the workshop
- To equip the !AH radio staff with skills on editorial know-how to handle local news.
- Increase the capacity of the !AH radio staff to provide more qualified programming and local news outputs relevant to the issues of local concern .
- Introduction to ICTs, FOSS and social media to the radio station.
Methodology
The methodology used gave the participants theoretical but also practical skills and tools and was delivered in a participatory approach, with group work, presentations. They also carried out field activities which led to editing some of the material that they had recorded during an on field recording session in the town of Tsumkwe during a community meeting which was held to discuss the issue of land and animals They also put into practice the knowledge they were acquiring eg on radio drama, by producing a 3 minute script.
Workshop content
The training covered the following:
1) Editorial, Programming and monitoring matters, including gender focus and different radio formats.
2) Use of ICTís in Radio programming, use of internet as well as the three main areas of public concerns in Tsumkwe area (Alcohol abuse, school drop outs and health esp TB).
3) Covering community issues fairly and objectively, with a special focus on gender.
Workshop evaluation
An evaluation was carried-out on the impact of the training
The workshop was successful and met the objectives.

1. For example, as a result of this training, two ICTs (ZaraRadio, Au) were installed on the radio computers and are now being used by the station staff, as well as a Facebook page and email account for the radio that will help improve communication with the community.
2. The training on editorial ICTs was a major improvement for the radio station as, up until the training, edition of content was done in analogue system, which will no longer be necessary since the staff was specifically trained on digital editing, saving the radio stationís time and notably increasing the quality and opportunities of their programming and content.
3. More follow up training need to be carried out with the station staff to improve their production and presentation skills.
