Call for Applications: MIND Nigeria seeks FGD Moderators

mindMIND is a Nigerian non-profit organisation that seeks to strengthen the public voices of groups who rarely have a chance to air their views in public – including women and girls. We equip them with research tools to examine their own situation. And give them access to media techniques to share their perspectives.

MIND (Media, Information, and Narrative Development) is seeking to engage four Moderators per 16 June 2014 to participate in a one and half-day Audience/Target Group Assessment through state-based Focus Group Discussions (FGD) in the four project states

The FGDs aim to assess the radio listening behaviour, interests, and communication styles of adolescent girls and women (AGWs) and adolescent boys and men (ABMs) residing in the State Capitals, and examine their prevailing gender norms. The results will be fed into a Capacity Building Strategy for radio professionals.
