On the day of October 22, banners are the main way to communicate with people. These banners will feature the theme of the 18th ISAD, the actors and the project partners, dates and places of business. They will be put in public areas. In total, we have provided 10 banners. We will have 2000 flyers and 20 posters that give information on AJEB, its partners and stuttering. They will be distributed during the activities. We have organized radio and television shows. These programs take place on some radio and television channel such as: 1. Radios: Radio Lomé, Canal FM, FM radio and Victory Gospel, and if possible;2. Televisions: TVT, TV2, TV7, LCF, and NWTV.
These transmissions will be in French, Ewe and Kabwe in order to reach a large number of people. For more visibility during the event, we will make 300 T-shirts, 50 caps, and 20 badges, which will include the theme of the day.
AWARENESS BY CARAVAN
October 22 is the ISAD. We have arranged a caravan consisting of 50 motorcycle taxis, a decorated truck that will be responsible for transporting the sound system; a car-taxi, and 30 volunteers. Throughout, the caravan stops at several strategic locations where we will broadcast some messages followed by question-answer games with the distribution of T-shirts and caps of the day.
