Brief Profile:

Wizarts Foundation is a not for profit media organization that specializes in producing radio and television programmes for positive social change. These programmes are shared amongst different communities in Uganda through: a network of more than 70 upcountry (partner) radio stations, online platforms, and social media. We work in multimedia formats to reach out to as wide an audience as we can.

Our thematic areas of interest include: Governance and Accountability, Adolescent Girls and Young Women, Climate Change, Agriculture, Health, and Youth.

We produce shows in different formats so as to engage a variety of listeners, viewers, and online media consumers. Typical formats include radio magazines, dramas, documentaries, debates, quizzes, news shows, features, and spoken word in poetry, essay, and short story narrative formats. We believe in sharing inclusive content and as such our content is always in various local languages.

Our Mission is Opening windows of knowledge to people, especially to those people in information poor areas. To this end all our work is subject to a simple test if it is a radio show we ask are you more knowledgeable for the time you commit to following it?

Our vision is Transforming media to impact communities. It matters that the content we share has a positive impact on society. We always ask ourselves, So what if our show has been listened to? Does it influence the behavior, practice, mindset, and attitude of the community following it? This central question guides the design and implementation of our programmes, campaigns and projects. As such data aggregation and the provision of tools in the form of a robust Monitoring and Evaluation approach forms the backbone of our programming.
