À propos

Radio Ndarason International (RNI); Le rôle principal de cette radio est de servir comme outil contre la violence extrême. Elle sert d’une plateforme pour promouvoir un discours local parmi tous les acteurs touchés par la crise actuelle dans la région du Lac Tchad.

Basée sur l’hypothèse que le dialogue est la condition nécessaire pour trouver une solution pacifique est durable, ce qui en son tour nous amène vers une meilleur qualité de vie.

La radio sert comme mécanisme à convaincre la population qu’ils ont un avenir dans la région. Rédigé en termes plus large – si on peut croire qu’une meilleure vie est possible dans la région du lac Tchad, le besoin et le désir à migrer à fin de s’installer ailleurs diminue.

La radio, en partenariat avec la Commission du Bassin du Lac Tchad (CBLT) diffuse du contenu en langues Kanembu et Kanuri dans le but d’aider la stabilisation de la région du Lac Tchad en stimulant le dialogue constructif entre tout le monde impliqué dans la crise actuelle.

Frequencies and broadcast times; the RNI radio network broadcasts on shortwave across the whole region and beyond, three hours of programmes every morning and three hours in the evening. In addition we have an FM transmitter in N’Djamena (107.1 FM) and another at Bol beside Lake Chad.

History: The radio started broadcasting in 2015 as a one hour a day service based in Kano, Nigeria called Dandal Kura Radio International (DKRI). In early 2016 we moved the studios to Maiduguri, NE Nigeria and began broadcasting 6 hours a day of mostly Kanuri language content.

For administrative reasons in 2016 we moved the headquarters of the operation to Ndjamena, Chad, but continued broadcasting as before. The next phase of development envisages the growing importance of N’Djamena as the key production and administration centre for the network. To reflect this development, a more regionally inclusive name for the radio is gradually being phased in – Radio Ndarason Internationale1 (RNI).

M&E; The growing place the radio occupies is evident in a just completed survey carried out in the Chadian capital as well as in the Lake Chad area. Survey results show that DKRI is a key driver in the effort to create a positive dialogue in the region, but its work is not complete.

These are some of the key findings by ORB International2, a US-based research organisation specialising in quantitative and qualitative research in complex environments:3

  • Listeners in Chad have an extremely positive idea (97%) of the radio
  • Over three quarters of listeners say that RNI meets their needs and
  • Listeners are very positive about the RNI’s offerings and are

particularly positive about broadcasts and content in the Kanuri and Kanembu languages.

  • Listeners appreciate RNI’s role as a source of unbiased news
  • Listeners (in Chad) express a clear (89%) preference for more content from N’Djamena
  • More than half of the listeners surveyed express increased support for the MNJTF because of listening to our radio.
  • Overall, listener support for extremism, violence and Boko Haram is

decreasing since listening to Radio Ndarason International.4
