We’ve reached the last episode of our season together. And the story in it will inspire you, while showing how community networks are essential and possible when different people get involved. For that, we’ll travel to Nairobi, the capital of Kenya, to meet James Nguo from the Arid Lands Information Network (ALIN), which works especially with the country’s rural population. This initiative shows how education, environmental justice and connectivity can be linked.
You will also get to know Kathleen Diga, speaking straight from Durban, in South Africa. She works for the Association for Progressive Communications (APC) and is the co-lead for the Local Networks initiative.
“Routing for Communities” is a 12-episode podcast. Here you will listen to the life stories of people who are connecting themselves while defending the well-being of their communities.
This podcast is an initiative from the Association for Progressive Communications (APC) and Rhizomatica, produced by Rádio Tertúlia.
