Information & Communication
Information and Communication
The programme communicates TRC’s activities to the world. It also serves as a hub for information exchange between TRC and the rest of the world. The main function of this programme is to keep TRC on the development radar.
This is done through various functions such as research, media liaison, public relations, debate, enquiries and publications. The programme is also a vehicle of TRC in its endeavours to harness organizational responsiveness, solidarity, partnership and linkages.
Work for Justice is journal of choice that has gained respect for projecting and sustaining debates. The newsletter clarifies certain issues that would otherwise be easily dismissed as old or insignificant. The glossy and semi-academic newsletter is popularly distributed among policy makers, researchers and the academia.
Litaba tsa Lesotho is a community friendly newspaper that mainly documents TRC activities in community empowerment and development initiatives. It appeals more to rural community residents and is usually distributed in TRC project sites as well as other areas to keep the public informed about TRC programmes.
Weekly radio programmes are hosted on Sethaleng Radio Station (103.30) at 6a.m to 8a.m on Mondays where conversations on a wide variety of issues related to TRC programmes, good governance and human rights are discussed to gain listenership views.
Website and Social Media Pages
These platforms are regularly updated with TRC’s main events and activities undertaken by different programmes. The website is a credible source of information about TRC, its partners and activities. It is more effective in attracting international awareness, strengthening solidarity and inspiring donor cooperation.
Topical issues on good governance and human rights are discussed monthly by TRC and friends to influence and improve government and other partners’ responsiveness in efficient and effective service delivery.
TRC activities are publicized in different media platforms to make them known to the public. Press conferences, press releases and information clips are used by numerous media houses to publicize TRC’s national and community activities. Various promotional materials are also produced to complement TRC programmes.
