Amplifying Community Voices
90% Community. 10% Radio
Our focus areas
Since formation, KCOMNET has focused its attention in the consolidation and strengthening of community media sector in Kenya through four programmatic interventions: Networking, capacity building, content development and policy advocacy.
We enhance advocacy for an enabling framework to improve policy and regulatory framework to expand the practice of community media in Kenya.
KCOMNET executes rigorous capacity building programmes for community media groups to make them strong, vibrant and sustainable.
We improve the generation of local content and programming in community radio stations to sustain their unique identity and become examples of best practice in the sector and for those emerging in the county governments in Kenya.
KCOMNET brings together individuals, media practitioners, community media groups, media professionals and NGOs committed to the promotion of community media and development communication in Kenya.
Word from the coordinator
Since formation, KCOMNET has focussed its attention in the consolidation and strengthening of community media sector in Kenya through four programmatic interventions: Networking, capacity building, content development and policy advocacy.
KCOMNET has been supporting community radio stations in Kenya for the purpose of enabling them to take their rightful place as a distinct sector of the media that addresses pertinent and pressing issues at the grassroots communities. We see community radio as an opportunity to spread tolerance, respect and understanding in a multicultural society. Our biggest concern as the sector grows in profile and popularity is sustainability of the radio stations.
We will continue to collaborate with local and international development partners to build the capacity of community based media and their practitioners in Kenya.
