Sida supports independent media to promote freedom of expression and increased democracy. In this video, made in cooperation with UNESCO, we show how we integrate ICTs within local radios, strengthen the capacity of journalists and create a network of correspondents. The purpose is to improve poor people's access to information, especially women and girls.
