HumAngle Signs Media Partnership To Improve Information Access In Lake Chad

The agreement between HumAngle and Radio Ndarason Internationale will provide access to credible and valuable information in multiple languages in the Lake Chad region.

HumAngle has signed a partnership with Radio Ndarason Internationale, which will expand access to information in remote areas of the Lake Chad region by using the indigenous Kanuri, Kanembu and Buduma languages.

As a niche and innovative media organisation that focuses on telling stories on security, conflict, accountability and humanitarian issues through the lens of the people, victims, survivors, and stakeholders, the new collaboration allows for enhanced reportage and broadcast to audiences on shortwave and FM. 

The agreement provides for joint production of relevant materials in the native Kanuri, Kanembu and Buduma languages, spoken widely across diverse communities in the different countries in the region. 

The two organisations will explore the opportunity to share insightful stories with a novel storytelling model to target particular interest audiences in the region, particularly those in the shoreline communities and displaced person camps.

The Lake Chad region suffers from a severe humanitarian crisis and displacement of more than two million people after nearly 13 years of violence. An estimated 11 million people in Cameroon, Chad, Niger, and Nigeria need humanitarian assistance.
