EARLY BIRD (CHOPPER)

MONDAY TO FRIDAY
8.00 A.M TO 10.00 A.M

Producer: Doreen Mwasi
Presenter: Doreen & Omnwa

Concept

Chopper is a local word that refers to a plane in a layman’s language and it’s the quickest means of transport in Kenya so far. The primary target audience are the youth (aged 18-34), most of which at this hour, are on their way out to hustle for the daily bread so the comfortable means is a chopper as we discuss social issues facing them. Life in the slums is far much behind so we need a quick way to catch up with others all over the world. Despite lives in the slum having a number of social challenges ranging from human right issues, environment, health, security, entrepreneurship, inter-community relations, there is enough human resources to come up with ideas on how to tackle those issues. So the show provides a platform for open discussion. Based on touching topic we put the community into a discussion on the root causes of the challenges and how they understand the issues so as to establish the areas of the concentration. After getting the root causes of the challenges, we discuss possible ways of tackling the issues using the available resources, put in practice and seeing if we can come up with a lasting solution.
