This workshop is designed to support an ongoing learning exchange run by UNICEF Sierra Leone between government, NGOs, traditional leaders and women’s groups. The specific topic to be address in this workshop, the use of media and mobile technology as a way to support women’s networks and assist them in efforts to facilitate change, is a national focus and priority for UNICEF. The Wi Pikin (our children) network, is designed to empower women and give them a sense of agency and control over their lives and the lives of their children. By developing stronger channels of communication, these women can ensure more effective change will be possible.
