What's better than dancing while learning? Population Media Center knows that it takes all kinds of activities to end cycles of violence and keep these smiles going.

Population Media Center (PMC) crafts stories for TV and radio that are designed to effect individual and community-wide change, specifically increasing the social power and self-determination of women and girls. And in many instances, PMC teams extend the impact of the shows with issue extension initiatives. These carefully designed and incredibly diverse activities build upon the momentum of the drama within the community. In Burundi, PMC’s team extended information about gender-based violence to schools, reaching 20 schools and more than 10,000 students. “Students are a dynamic group, quick to understand, who can play a considerable role in the eradication of the scourge once they earn a solid knowledge and relevant skills on the issue,” says Bernard Bankukira, PMC-Burundi’s Communications and Promotion Officer.
