    Enabling a Public Announcement System

    Day 257

    Attention Kyangwali

    At ARC, whenever we see someone doing something incredible, we want to get behind them and help them do what they do. So, Day 257 was dedicated to supporting a changemaker.

    Emma and his friends have created a PA (Public Announcement) system in Kyangwali. The system is all about building awareness in the community about issues like violence against women and girls. Emma plays songs about preventing violence. And he invites advocates in the community to share their messages and have their voices amplified. People gather to hear the announcements.

    Emma has an amp and microphone, but he doesn’t have a laptop to be able to play songs and share other important materials. So any time he wanted to do an announcement, he’d have to ask an ARC staffer to use their laptop. And many times they were busy with work of their own.

    But Emma’s work is so important that we wanted to make sure he had what he needed to do it right. So, on Day 257, we purchased a dedicated laptop for Emma to use for his PA system.

    “I have been inconveniencing staff who are writing reports and other work to use their computers,” said Emma. “Now that’s no more. We shall always be on time now for community awareness.”

    This change made possible by Atomic Data.
