    A simple solution to get the word out

    Day 144

    Amplifying Voices

    Community Activists are so important to their communities. That much is clear even in just the last two days as they were trained to provide home-based care for ill neighbors and kitted out with the tools and supplies they need for their work.

    But one of the most vital things these activists provide is information. They’re from every different community and nationality in Nakivale settlement, and they pass the information they hear from ARC and other organizations on to their neighbors. Messages about hygiene and violence prevention. So, we wanted to help them reach even more in their community and maybe give their vocal chords a bit of a rest. On Day 144, each community activist received a speaker.

    “We go house-to-house to spread positive messages about things like sending girls to school,” said Community Activist Ezekiel Busimba. “Now I can load songs onto the speaker about preventing violence and play those for my community, too.”

    The new speakers will allow the community activists to share information and engage their communities in new ways. We’re hoping the community activists will also use the speakers for fun occasions, like loading them up with music and hosting an impromptu dance party with their neighbors. We’ll see what happens, but the speakers are certainly in the right hands.

    This change made possible by Cresa.
