Beyond the broadcast

 

PMC’s Umurage 2 (“Inheritance for a Better Future”) was broadcast on five radio stations across Rwanda, addressing family planning and couple communication, antenatal and post-natal care, adolescent sexual health, gender-based violence, and malaria.

To accompany this 54-episode radio show, the PMC-Rwanda team designed numerous traditional and digital strategies to engage fans and enhance impact. Listeners were able to attend in-person performances and events that drew more than 15,000 Rwandans. Additionally, community dialogue was strengthened online with social media apps, like Facebook and WhatsApp, and on the airwaves with 31 supporting radio talk shows designed to feature experts to expand upon issues raised in the storylines.

NETFLIX'S CONTROVERSIAL CHILD EXPLOITATION FILM IS BOLD, FLAWED - AND MISUNDERSTOOD

The film and its accusers turn out to be on the same side: Mignonnes attacks the pornification of girls and young women by social media and society in general; it is about the false promise of liberation in this kind of sexualised display.
