IHRICON has, as part of their many programmes, trained local women to become journalists. These women are taught how to produce press releases and how to produce local newspapers. The local newspapers are often called wall newspapers as they are available to read on conveniently placed walls around the community. Wall newspapers are often used as a major vehicle of the communication network within a local community. IHRICON has been involved in these activities for many years. These newspapers are published with the aim of raising the issues and case studies related to enhancement of women and the empowerment of the isolated sectors of society. They particularly contain many stories which are relevant to the local community. The wall newspapers are published through the women who are in the Community Peace Volunteers network and they are distributed within the villages.
