  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 story has evolvedand has been guided by transition and innovation. Thanks to the invaluable support of our friends, PCI-Media Impact continues to reach more people in morecountries with vital life-changing access to information on some of the most pressing issues of our time, including family planning, reproductive health,HIV/AIDS, sustainable development, biodiversity conservation, climate change, gender and human rights, and democracy.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 a television drama,Mucho Corazón, which broadcasts on 24 stations throughout Latin America and the United States. Moreover, My Island - My Community alone has united 50Caribbean agencies to work together on a common problem: a threatened environment with increased vulnerability to the effects of climate change. We havehighlighted more successful stories throughout this report, in the hope that you will appreciate how much your 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 our work with arigorous 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 is designed with threeoverarching goals in mind – our “3C’s” – capacity, community, changes. Though each of our programs is heavily contextualized and adapted to the appropriateculture, we aim to strengthen the capacity of local partners to effectively use communications to catalyze change in their communities. We measure this changebased on three salient shifts in knowledge, attitudes and behaviors around targeted social and environmental issues.While this methodology continues to drive our programs, we have been digging deeper this past year, discussing what else we could do to bring about socialchange through storytelling and creative communication. In this spirit, we have expanded the breadth of our work to act as a trusted Communications forDevelopment advisor to a number of citizens and organizations all over the world – groups that want to tell their own important story 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 to understand andleverage our increasing number of media platforms. As a media organization, it is imperative that we stay relevant in this growing field in order to be best-positioned to maximize our impact. Therefore, in addition to integrating our methodology into the various social media platforms, we have also been exploringnew 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 Listeners are alreadycontributing to talk shows via text messaging, while in n the Caribbean, for example, we have been using smart phones to project our work. 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 participate in and contribute to talk shows viatext messaging. These messages will then be tracked and used for program monitoring and evaluation. These are just a few of many developments that willallow us to continue to impact more people in more countries – delivering excellent programs, telling our 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 yourongoing support, we look forward to continue to change the world, one story at a time.Warm regards,Sean SoutheyExecutive Director

  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, and thousands of other issues that are part Program Objectives of our society and that we need to eradicate. • Promote understanding of the importance of democracy and - 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.

Weaving togetherrelevant information on this species with a compelling storymodeling desired attitudes and behaviors the program aims toreduce threats to Western Chimpanzees 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
