Abstract

This paper focuses on the contribution of a community radio (Serian Radio) to community empowerment of women among pastoralist communities in Northern Kenya. A multi-stage sampling technique was used to select 4 divisions for the study. Data was gathered to determine the extent to which women participate in Serian FM programmes, productions that address the various issues facing Samburu women and the challenges faced by Serian FM in addressing various issues facing Samburu women. The paper established that Serian radio has worked to improve awareness and knowledge to solutions of community challenges and women issues in particular. The station has proved to be appropriate medium that has facilitated an interface It is recommended that regular feedback from the listening public is essential in identifying listeners’ preferences and the taste of various listeners segments (youth, women, men, aged, etc) and to avoid politics and religion.
