OUR MISSION


To strengthen community media sector in Kenya through four programmatic interventions: Networking, capacity building, content development and policy advocacy. Read more

 

Since its formation KCOMNET has engaged in intensive training and capacity building and lobbying for an overall regulatory framework for broadcasting with special emphasis to community broadcasting. This has included the demand for an enabling environment for community media, constitutional and legal amendments, repeals and additions, which guarantee the freedoms of expression, information and communication. KCOMNET has also conducted extensive awareness on the meaning of community media to remove the misconceptions that existed in the minds of most that equated community media to tribal radio. KCOMNET has achieved considerable success in lobbying for policy, legal and regulatory environment for community radio in Kenya, as well as in serving its members, and building the capacity of community radio and its impact in the service of democratisation and community development.

Radio is acknowledged as the most widespread electronic communications’ device in the world, a unique, most convenient and affordable means of reaching the world’s populace, even in very remote areas. Nearly all Kenyans are radio listeners and it is from radio that they source news and information. For most local communities who are poor community radio has revolutionized the manner in which they express their culture, receive entertainment, news information as well as engage in dialogue and development.

Amplifying community voices

Amplifying community voices


KCOMNET places community radio stations in top priority in the development of the community media sector. This is borne by the fact that effective community radio stations are able to effectively integrate and promote other forms of community media. One of the areas which distinguish community radio stations from the private and public broadcasters is their focus on content and programming generated from the community.

At KCOMNET we continue to help community radios improve their generation of community based local content and programming so that they don't loose their unique identity and positioning as the distinct third sector of broadcasting.
