MZUZU--In a bid to advance climate change awareness campaign, Leadership for Environment and Development (LEAD), has helped the University of Malawi focal constituent college, Chancellor College, with television and radio equipments.
“Yes, I can confirm, we have bought radio and television equipment with help from LEAD and very soon the radio will be going on air,” said Senior Assistant Registrar Elias Chizimba.
“LEAD has just helped with the finances because they would like their climate change awareness campaign to have a new platform of approach to their audience, otherwise the radio and TV will belong to Chanco,” he said.
Apart from advocating for climate change awareness campaign, the two stations, which will be run by the Department and Language and Communication, will allow students who are studying media to train before they graduate.
LEAD is a non-profit organization promoting leadership and sustainable development. Founded in 1991, LEAD has 13 member programmes around the world, with a fast growing network of leaders and professionals in more than 80 countries, who are inspired and committed to achieving leadership and good governance for a sustainable world.
