  2. 2.   NOTE FROM OUR EXECUTIVE DIRECTORDear friends,2011 has been an eventful year! Fueled by the same passion that has inspired millions of people around the world to tell their story, our own storyhas evolved and has been guided by transition and innovation. Thanks to the invaluable support of our friends, PCI-Media Impact continues to reachmore people in more countries with vital life-changing access to information on some of the most pressing issues of our time, including familyplanning, reproductive health, HIV/AIDS, sustainable development, biodiversity conservation, climate change, gender and human rights, anddemocracy. 2011 was also a year marked with success. In Mexico, for example, what started as a radio drama Corazón de Mujer, has now expanded into atelevision drama, Mucho Corazón, which broadcasts on 24 stations throughout Latin America and the United States. Moreover, My Island - MyCommunity alone has united 50 Caribbean agencies to work together on a common problem: a threatened environment with increased vulnerabilityto the effects of climate change. We have highlighted more successful stories throughout this report, in the hope that you will appreciate how muchyour support has enabled us to accomplish.I have the privilege of working with an exceptional staff and Board of Directors, all of whom share my deeply-committed mandate to engage in ourwork with a rigorous approach, focusing on three areas: delivering excellent programs, telling our stories and developing innovative new programs. Our methodology, My Community, continues to be the cornerstone of our work, empowering people to improve their lives. This approach isdesigned with three overarching goals in mind – our “3C’s” – capacity, community, changes. Though each of our programs is heavily contextualizedand adapted to the appropriate culture, we aim to strengthen the capacity of local partners to effectively use communications to catalyze change intheir communities. We measure this change based on three salient shifts in knowledge, attitudes and behaviors around targeted social andenvironmental issues. While this methodology continues to drive our programs, we have been digging deeper this past year, discussing what else we could do to bringabout social change through storytelling and creative communication. In this spirit, we have expanded the breadth of our work to act as a trustedCommunications for Development advisor to a number of citizens and organizations all over the world – groups that want to tell their own importantstory to attain social progress. Just as it is paramount to empower our partners, whose support is indispensable to the quality and sustainability of our work, it is vital tounderstand and leverage our increasing number of media platforms. As a media organization, it is imperative that we stay relevant in this growingfield in order to be best-positioned to maximize our impact. Therefore, in addition to integrating our methodology into the various social mediaplatforms, we have also been exploring new ways to deliver our programs and services using sports, music and other entertaining mediums. Furthermore, we are looking to harness the use of mobile phones and integrating this medium into our community-driven methodology Listenersare already contributing to talk shows via text messaging, while in n the Caribbean, for example, we have been using smart phones to project ourwork. In the future, cell-phone users will be able to upload and watch short E-E programs directly from their phones and will be able to participatein and contribute to talk shows via text messaging. These messages will then be tracked and used for program monitoring and evaluation. Theseare just a few of many developments that will allow us to continue to impact more people in more countries – delivering excellent programs, tellingour stories and developing innovative new programs.In retrospect, it has indeed been an important year of transition and innovation. The passion that ignites our work shines brighter than ever before!With your ongoing support, we look forward to continue to change the world, one story at a time.

  10. 10. Promoting understanding of the importance of democracy and greater civic participation.Voces Nuestras (Our Voices) is a national four-year program in Bolivia which seeks to strengthen the capacity ofcommunity radio stations to produce relevant programs and engage listeners. These capacities encourage the stations’role in promoting access to communication and increasing tolerance in a multicultural society.Central to the program is the serial drama, Dark City, which has been adapted for Quechua and Aymara audiences. Itreflects society’s prejudices and unhealthy relationships, while also shedding light on the need for civic participation,communication and diversity. Drawing on stories gathered in meetings with audiences in cities throughout Bolivia, DarkCity captures and represents the real life experiences and stories of its listeners and how they survive in a climate ofpolitical corruption, exclusion and intolerance. Because of this process, the audience identifies with the characters andadopts the behavior changes promoted in the drama.Now in the second phase of implementation, Our Voices is working with 6 of the initial 30 participants who are serving asmentors to support the new participating radio stations as they develop talk shows to accompany the drama. These sixmentors are also working to support regional campaigns to promote citizen engagement in the issues addressed throughthe drama. WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING: The radio drama contains deep messages. It should be analyzed by and distributed to the entire population. It is important to let the audience know about their rights, and to learn about discrimination, homophobia, xenophobia, Program Objectives and thousands of other issues that are part of our society • Promote understanding of the importance of democracy and and that we need to eradicate. - Guest at Radio Pataju, a participating station greater civic participation. • Strengthen capacity and professionalism of local radio stations • Promote networks among community radio stations. • Increase access of Bolivian citizens to independent media.

  12. 12. Youth, Citizenship, Intercultural and Intergenerationaldialogue, participatory community development planning, coexistence and peaceful conflict resolutionA 2003 quality of life survey lead by Colombia’s DANE (Departamento Administrativo de Estadistica), theNational Administrative Department of Statistics, showed that 66% of the country’s youth (0 to 26 years)lives in extreme poverty. These youth receive no assistance from the government and also face“temptations” offered by drug dealers, guerillas and gangs.To counteract these negative influences on Colombia’s youth, Media Impact and Fundación Socialpartnered to train youth community-based organizations and Fundación Social’s staff in Entertainment-Education methodology for and communication for social change strategies. Using this approach, theprogram addressed issues of youth and Citizenship, intercultural and intergenerational dialogue,participatory community development planning, coexistence and peaceful conflict resolution. An estimated 100,000 listeners are reached in the four areas of Bogota, Ibagué, Barbosa and Pasto (which have a combined total population of 2,220,000).

  14. 14.

African Americans and Hispanics experience a higher vulnerability regarding health risk factors, such as diabetes or obesity. Body Love, Camberwell and its Spanish equivalent Promesas y Traiciones address these concerns and promote healthier lifestyle choices and improved health-seeking behavior.

  19. 19. Conservation of Western Chimpanzee HabitatsWorking in Sierra Leone and Liberia, an Entertainment-Educationradio serial drama was created under the My Western Chimpanzee– My Community program. Weaving together relevant informationon this species with a compelling story modeling desired attitudesand behaviors the program aims to reduce threats to WesternChimpanzees and their environment.Specifically this means reducing thehunting and killing of chimpanzees andthe destruction of their forest habitat.Ultimately, the goal is to stop the declinein chimpanzee numbers and contributeto the conditions necessary for apopulation recovery. What People Are Saying: “The case for chimpanzee conservation is based on both economic self-interest as well as an ethical perspective on sharing this world with a species that is our closest relative. With this program, we hope to empower people in Sierra Leone and Liberia to first imagine a future of co-existence with chimpanzees and then to support conservation efforts which benefit both their own communities and the chimpanzees.” – Dr. William Banham, Program Director, PCI-Media Impact
