Communication for Development Foundation Uganda (CDFU) has vast experience in radio programme development, scripting, production, broadcasting and monitoring of different radio programmes including radio drama (serial drama and magazine radio drama); radio spots and interactive talk shows. All our radio programmes are evidence-based and have evaluation results that show that the programmes have proven effective in influencing behaviour change through modelling rather than instruction. Listeners to the radio programs are closely linked to the toll – free Hotline 0800 200 600 for more information, counselling and referral on health and development issues.

With an in-house scripting team, CDFU produces and broadcasts the award winning weekly 30 minute radio serial drama called Rock Point 256 that started under the Young Empowered and Healthy (Y.E.A.H) initiative in 2005. Rock Point 256 is broadcast on various local radio stations country wide in English, Luganda, 4Rs, Nga’Karimajong and Lwo, reaching over 2,500,000 young people every week. CDFU also produced Healthy Choices, a radio programme coupled with interpersonal communication to promote individual and social behaviour change. The 4 – year programme is supported by UNFPA. CDFU also produced Kaloke with funding from UNICEF under the Peace Building and Social Transformation project. On behalf of Pathfinder International, CDFU produced 52 episodes of Oteka, a radio serial drama focusing on gender and reproductive health issues of young people in Northern Uganda under their Gender Roles Equality and Transformation (GREAT) project.

Under the Community Resilience and Dialogue Project (CRD), CDFU was responsible for the production and broadcast of a radio serial drama programme Together We Stand from July 2003 to May 2005. The project was based in the conflict affected regions of Western Uganda, West Nile, Northern and North Eastern Uganda.

CDFU managed the production and broadcast of All Our Children radio program series on behalf of the CORE Initiative program under the Ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development (MGLSD). CDFU’s activities included scripting, managing the production process, production of a signature tune, production of radio spots and managing broadcast.
