YWCA Rwanda developed, recorded and broadcast mini radio drama sketches on PSEA, which were broadcast to 14,000 residents of the Nyabiheke refugee camp and 300,000 persons from the surrounding districts of Nyagatare, Gatsibo and Gicumbi. Live radio talk shows were conducted to engage the target audience for feedback on attitudes, behavior changes, raising awareness on SEA. Nearly 600 people participated in the talk shows through phone calls and social media.
