Community Radio Expanding Awareness To Inhibit Violent Extremism (CREATIVE): PROGRAM DESCRIPTION The Public Affairs Section of the U.S. Embassy in Nairobi announces an open competition for organizations to submit applications to design and implement an innovative program to use community radio to build resilience, trust, and narratives to counter violent extremism on the Kenyan coast. The project will be implemented in two phases. The first phase will train and build capacity for up to 15 community radio stations to include journalist training on investigating and reporting, media responsibilities, and providing unbiased, factual information. The second phase will focus on content creation for journalists and audiences fostering dialogue, engagement, and broadcast of these conversations, including as town halls. Applicants should describe how they will select the 15 community radio stations in their proposal. The project supports the Embassy's strategic goal of strengthening resilience in at-risk populations and supporting peace. To build ties to ongoing embassy initiatives and foster sustainability, program proposals should include U.S. exchange program alumni and the American Space libraries in Mombasa and Lamu. Ideal partners include organizations with experience countering violent extremism on the Kenyan coast. At least 5% of the full award amount should be allocated to third-party monitoring and evaluation, to include feedback from the community radio journalists and listeners. Priority Region: Kenyan coast Program Objectives: The project implementers will identify radio stations on the Kenyan coast, empower their journalists through trainings, enhance effective radio programming and coverage of violent extremism-related issues, and equip them with modern equipment to support long-term viability.
