Laikipia Rural Voices agenda for 2014

By Bob Aston 

The Laikipia Rural Voices (LRV) which is supported by Arid Lands Information Network (ALIN) through Ng’arua Maarifa Centre would like to wish all its readers and the Citizen Journalism Reporters a happy 2014. LRV hopes that 2014 will signify new and better things for all its friends and partners.
LRV was started by ALIN in 2011. This was an initiative aimed at promoting community journalism by training young people on basic Journalism skills such as photojournalism, News writing, Creative writing, Feature writing, Interviewing, Online journalism and Media Laws and Ethics.

This year Laikipia Rural Voices will be working towards ensuring that there is enhanced citizen participation in governance issues, increased global dialogue among citizens and increased scrutiny of government services.
The long term goal of Laikipia Rural Voices is ensuring that there is effective citizen participation in policy dialogue and that the voices of Citizen Reporters are heard globally.
Laikipia Rural Voices will this year continue to strive to give Sipili and the larger Laikipia County communities a platform where they can share their own stories as well as giving them an opportunity to be part of a global community of men and women who are passionate about development news.
Laikipia Rural Voices looks forward to a greater community involvement in 2014. Those who are interested in Citizen Journalism will always be welcome to Ng’arua Maarifa Centre. LRV would love for you to join them. Jump on in, tell your story and see how it connects with someone on the other side of the world.
In 2013 Laikipia Rural Voices managed to post 91 articles. This roughly translated to an average of one article posted after every four days. This year LRV will strive not only to increase the number of articles posted but also to improve on the quality of articles that will be posted on the blog.
Laikipia Rural Voices will this year try to engage its readers more often. Readers’ feedback, critism and opinions will be highly appreciated. Please always feel free to comment on blog posts as well as engaging LRV on Facebook, twitter and Google+.
LRV has so far received 31,670 visitors and 18,031 page views. This year LRV seeks to significantly increase the number of blog visitors. Please try to share LRV’s blog posts with others through Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and E-mail.
Laikipia Rural Voices would also like to urge its readers to follow them through facebook, Google+, twitter and Really Simple Syndication (RSS). One can also get blog post updates through E-mail subscription.
Laikipia Rural Voices hopes that 2014 will be a successful year.
LRV once again wishes all its readers and the Citizen Journalism Reporters a prosperous 2014. God bless you all.
