Mission Statement : MISSION STATEMENT Communicating for Change (CFC) is a dynamic, state-of-the-art communications organisation raising Africans’ awareness of environment and development issues to create positive change to develop the continent and change lifestyles. Messages are produced from a distinctly African perspective to counter the ever increasing flow of foreign, often culturally inappropriate, programming. Besides awareness rising, CFC plays an important role in promoting partnerships between the public, private, academic, and NGO sectors by providing excellent, appropriate, and cutting-edge communications support, products, and training. More About CFC CFC raises Africans’ awareness of environment and development issues (including gender, health, education, agriculture, debt relief, forests, climate change, water, pollution and democracy & good governance). CFC focuses on audio, video, print, media research, theatre, capacity building and electronic communications via the Internet to relay messages. CFC is a grantee of the Ford Foundation, the Norwegian Human Rights Fund, and the Rockefeller Foundation, and works in partnership with numerous international organisations including the Television Trust for the Environment (TVE) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). It is funded through grants, donations, and income generated from fee-based services. CFC is a non-governmental organisation limited by guarantee and is run entirely on a not-for profit basis.

CFC produces a monthly radio script publication called "Change Radio" in English, French, Hausa, Yoruba, and Igbo. The script service is made up of news & feature stories written & timed for radio. Change Radio is sent to all Nigerian radio stations, leading newspapers, wire services, academic institutes, non-governmental organisations, community based organisations, government agencies as well as to numerous international and pan-African organizations and media contacts in Sub-Saharan Africa. An evaluation conducted in late 1999, showed that the scripts have become a valuable resource and are in high demand by not only radio producers, but also print and television journalists.
