Straight Talk Campaign in Uganda: Parent Survey

Straight Talk Campaign in Uganda: Parent Survey

Ratings: (0)|Views: 159 |Likes:
The purpose of this study was to assess how Ugandan parents are using Straight Talk Foundation materials designed for their adolescent children as well as for themselves. The materials comprise of a weekly multi-lingual radio program for adolescents, a monthly multilingual newsletter for older adolescents, a quarterly English language newspaper for younger adolescents, and an English language newspaper for parents. The parent newspaper, Parent Talk, was launched in June 2004 and at the time of the survey, only three issues had been published. Since 2006, STF has been broadcasting multi-lingual radio programs for parents, and has also launched multi-lingual versions of Parent Talk. However, these were not in existence during the evaluation and are therefore not addressed in this report.
