SDRO seeks to address endemic problem of grass root voices remaining unheard at the regional and national spaces by both strengthening community based forms of communication as well as supporting and enabling communities to move beyond traditional forms of communication. The core of this programme will be building the capacities of communities to put forth their perspectives through a range of traditional and non-traditional forms of media, including forum theatre, community magazine, and the use of the arts, short films and documentaries.


SDRO has established partnerships with multiple stakeholders, particularly organized social groups that advocate on behalf of the community on issues of public concern, in order to strengthen community groups through media and community based forms of communication such as community theatre, community Journalism and community Video.
