Radio Spots & PSAs

Radio spots or public service announcements (PSAs) can take many forms, but need to be highly entertaining to grab people's attantion fast. Many of CMFD's radio spots have used a mini-drama format as experience has shown that this format is most effective for engaging listeners quickly and sustaining their interest. Spot scripts are developed and written either in close consultation or with direct participation of communities they are designed for.

OLDER PROJECTS

Get the Facts Before You Go – This series of five spots on human trafficking was developed and recorded in a participatory workshop with the Alertas da Vida youth group for the International Organisation for Migration. The spots were broadcast in Mozambique, and later adapted and reproduced by the IOM for other Southern African countries.


Youth Environmental Programme  - In the early years, CMFD worked with young people in Ghana to develop a series of spots on environmental issues. An activity book designed for youth accompanied the spots and included games, true and false quizzes and crossword puzzles based on the information in the spots.

As well, to help address the problem of sexual harassment, a three part series of public service announcements was developed to promote awareness about the issue and encourage people to speak out.
