PMC provided training and consultation to support production of Makgabaneng (“At the Foot of the Hill”), a radio serial drama produced in Botswana. This three-week training took place in Gaborone, Botswana from March 19 – April 6, 2001.

Prior to its launch, PMC served as advisor for Makgabaneng, developing a detailed plan and budget for a radio serial drama project in Botswana. PMC designed the formative research in 2000 and then PMC personnel conducted a three-week PMC training in March – April of 2001 to train a team of producers and scriptwriters. Makgabaneng aired on Radio Botswana starting in August 2001 in Setswana, a language spoken by about 90 percent of Botswana’s population.

PMC provided a three-week training and advised for a serial drama on Radio Botswana.
