Our Impact

Impact On Human Rights and Democracy

With recent studies showing that 6 million Malawians listen to Story Workshop radio programs each week, we have been pleased to watch our constituency develop substantially over recent years.

More importantly, our measurement and evaluation activities indicate that our programs are resulting in behavior modification – changing lives as people model their behavior and actions on the lessons imparted by popular story characters.

But don’t take our word for it. Read what our audience has to say:

What The Audience Say

"I like Tilitonse so much that I make sure that I don’t miss it. I like it because I learn how to live with people both at the village, town and anywhere else. At last I know where to go whenever my rights are violated." Emmanuel Mark Jailosi, Chiwawa
"I have been listening to this programme since it started. I have learned about human rights, corruption in workplaces, justice for prisoners rape cases . I must be frank, you have opened our eyes." Cicilia Tebulo, Chiradzulu
"I keenly listen to Tilitonse…I make sure that I don’t miss it both on Friday and Sunday. I have learned much of human rights issues. I now know that it’s only the police who have authority t prosecute a convict or to give him a bell in accordance with what he is charged for. In short, Tilitonse is helping the government. Corrupt and lazy chiefs are now aware that there is nothing good for them if they continue with their bad behavior. Hence, lots of chiefs are changing for the better and I hope that other people with authority both in rural and urban sectors are changing for the better." Mc Junior Hanjahanja, Chikwawa
