Gender, information and participatory communication in rural areas in Africa: these are the words that better define my main work area for the last 10 years. My educational background is in Sciences of Education and Training, but my professional experience also includes journalism, facilitation, training, translation and gender issues in rural development. I have worked as a consultant for different Rome-based UN organizations since 1993. Today I’m the Coordinator of the FAO-Dimitra Project (Women, Gender and Rural Development) that supports the community listeners’ clubs (CLCs), a powerful gender-sensitive approach that uses community radio and ICTs to empowering rural populations, women in particular.
