Dear Valued Supporters and Listeners,
Strey Khmer would like to announce its new Radio programme called “Women’s Success”, which will be dedicated to round-table discussions and “call-ins”. This program will be on air twice a month and aims to increase and promote the number of Cambodian women in politics. It will start on Friday, August 17, 2012 on the National Radio Station AM 918KHz from 11-12pm. The program is generously supported by our funders PAZ Y DESARROLLO (PYD), under the main topic of “Promoting Women’s Political Participation in Politics”.
The programme will also involve Strey Khmer expanding their existing listener clubs including to those in Kratie, Stung Treng and Ratanakiri provinces.
1/ Provide women with the opportunity to communicate amongst each other and with the public;
2/ Real women, raising real issues and giving real answers about women’s lives and women’s choices;
3/ Use women’s voices as a political message to bring about real change for women;
4/ Provide training and technical support for women who aspire to be involved in the media and to encourage more women to enter the field.
