Green and red cards for the media

I recently visited the Centre for Domestic Violence Prevention (CEDOVIP) in Kampala, Uganda. Over time they have built some good relationships with the media. I am used  to a number of organisations having hard words for the media, but Cedovip seems to take a gentler approach — they do offer criticism when they’re unhappy with media coverage of domestic violence issues, but they do so gently. They also are careful to offer praise when it’s due. One of the ways they do this is by  sending out green and red cards – green for praise, and red for criticism.

Cedovip’s director, Tina Musuya, was recently the focus of a full-page feature in the Saturday edition of the New Vision newspaper. The journalist asked her some awful questions but she handled if very well. Have a look here.
