Zoukoutap 3

Haiti

PMC is producing Zoukoutap 3 (“To Limp”) in Haiti. The 156-episode radio show airs November 2018 to July 2020 in Haitian Creole, a language spoken by over 90 percent of Haitians.

PMC is excited to announce the debut of Zoukoutap 3 (“To Limp”). This 156-episode series celebrates the beautiful people of Haiti – while working to impact some of the unspoken challenges of Haitian society. It is being broadcast on three stations in Port Au-Prince (Haiti’s capital) as well as 27 community and private radio stations from all 10 departments of the country.

Notably, this is the third show to carry the Zoukoutap title and expand upon known and new storylines. PMC is so pleased to be continuing this important work with our Haitian colleagues. The topics addressed include sexual education, child protection, family planning, sexual and gender-based violence, and gender equity. This extends and builds on many of the health and human rights themes from Zoukoutap 1 & 2.

The broadcast dates for the Port au Prince medias are Tuesdays and Thursdays with a rebroadcast during the weekend. All other radio stations broadcast on Wednesdays and Fridays with a rebroadcast on weekends. Zoukoutap 2 reached 450,000 regular listeners and we expect to reach over 500,000 regular listeners with Zoukoutap 3.

As with all PMC shows, Zoukoutap 3 is created using PMC’s methodology.

Making a Difference

Zoukoutap 3 addresses important issues in an entertaining way, which provides a very captivating form of education. It is too early in the broadcast to measure impact or listenership, but we expect to reach listeners with storylines that identify their rights and the rights of others.

Storylines


Johnny's Story

Jmix's group
 
Johnny (JMix) is a DJ who lives in Lamitye, a small town located on the national road toward the North. JMix’s new friendship with DJ Wiizz, a violent and sleazy man, definitely has something to do with changes in his behavior. When JMix is fired from the radio station where he works, he does not even realize that his newly learned misogynistic words and behavior caused this to happen. The radio station does not want one of its hosts to promoting sexist songs and negative values regarding women. Since the two DJs started organizing “parties” together, JMix began losing most of his longtime friends, including the love of his life, Cynthia. However, thanks to Magguy, the owner of the local bar where JMix works on Fridays, JMix will come to his senses. Magguy is a veteran of a hard-knock life with her own secrets. But her wisdom, strength, and unusual friendship will help guide JMix to a responsible life, bringing him back to the values and relationships he lost.

Myrtha's Story

Myrtha's family
 

Myrtha is a teacher. She lives in Capuchon with her husband Sergo and her son Samuel. In this blended family there is also Flore, the daughter of Sergo who lives at her mother’s house in a nearby town (in Beaulieu). Flore, an intelligent and authentic girl, treats Samuel as her own brother. It is probably because Flore is not at her father’s house every day that she does not immediately notice that Samuel is neglected by his mother, abused at school, and abused by his stepfather. Myrtha has a lot of affection for Flore, but she turns a blind eye to everything that has to do with Samuel. Sergo explains that because Samuel is a boy, he must be brought up by his firm hand to become a man. Myrtha resigns herself to Sergo and accepts all the ideas about Samuel’s education conveyed by her husband. Myrtha does not notice the signs of alarm and ignores the evidence that her son is being abused.
