Projects are the core of our work. All major projects of Kenya Community Media Network (KCOMNET) are collaboratively undertaken by community communication groups, local and international development partners.
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.
WHERE WE WORK
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.
