ARKTL in an exciting partnership with SAPO.tl will deliver online and social media training to community radio in Timor-Leste. SAPO.tl is a strong ambassador for empowering the people of Timor Leste with the training and skills to use online tools to share information, resources and news. Gina XXX from SAPO.tl is excited about the partnership with ARKTL because it will help put community radio online so they can share information faster and with more people. Gina says “Timor-Leste is not just Dili, training the community radio network can help the districts have presence online and share their stories and information not just with Timor-Leste but also the rest of the world”
Prezado Ximenes, President of ARKTL thinks it’s important that community radio build their expertise in online news and networking tools. He says “Internet access is growing in Timor-Leste, access through computers and mobile phones. This opportunity for online training with SAPO.tl will help Community Radio to prepare for the future and enable us to tap into these networks to easily access information and allow us to share this information with more people – in Dili, the districts and outside the country. “
ARKTL and SAPO.tl are giving the opportunity for one representative from each community radio station in Timor-Leste to take part in a 3-day workshop covering writing for the web, social media tips and tools, online networking and more. The workshop will take place in Dili, on the 16-18 June and the 23-25 June.
