The project is implemented by the following organisations:
“During any electoral process in Kenya, the youth and women are always portrayed in the media as victims and perpetrators and this affects their potential to participate either as voters or as aspirants,” says Robert Nyagah, coordinator of AWC supported Media Diversity Centre in Malindi.
Over 29 media practitioners and civil society officials in Kilifi County recently benefited from a training on how to handle the youth and gender issues in the electoral process conducted by African Woman and Child Feature Service under the Tuvuke Peaceful Initiative project.
Pomp and colour characterised the launch of the Tuvuke Initiative in Kenya at a time when the country is implementing the new constitution and preparing for election under a fresh dispensation.
The Tuvuke Launch aired live by a leading media house in Kenya was attended by over 200 invited guests and watched by millions of Kenyans in their homes.
