The Liberia Media for Democratic Initiatives (LMDI) was
established in October 2011 and registered during the same
period with the Liberian Government. Its mission is to achieve
good governance and to promote peaceful co-existence through
media related programs and outreach. LMDI regards building the
post-conflict fragile peace and the development of the media in
Liberia as key to sustaining Liberia’s emerging democracy.
LMDI is a revision of the vision of the Liberia Media Initiative
founded in 2007 by John O. Kollie, Founder and Director.
LMDI aims to achieve participatory democracy, and by extension its sustenance,
through media sensitization, media empowerment, training and workshops for media
practitioners, outreach on peacebuilding and national reconciliation, and awareness
on key development issues, pillars and governance.
The LMDI is working towards an overall goal of achieving democratic governance
through people’s inclusion to consolidate peace in Liberia. The LMDI at the moment
runs five active radio and Community outreach programs all based on themes around
democracy, governance, peacebuilding and development. LMDI programs include:
The Dialogue

This is a live outdoor Interactive Talk Show. For the first time on the Liberian Media Landscape, people have the opportunity to speak to their leaders, especially policy makers, about policies that affect their lives. The people and their leaders meet face-to-face here in town halls or just simply open air and impromptu gatherings, and are given the chance to exchange views on critical national and community issues. Deliberations from the forums are recorded and produced into one hour radio and TV programmes for broadcast on  45 media partners radio (both national and community) across Liberia. This is a space for real people-to-people dialogue and debates.
LMDI provides the space for rural communities to talk about issues of democracy, governance and
development. Reporters and producers take to the field in search of the voices that matter on
peacebuilding, general governance and the living conditions of the people and national reconciliation.
National government policies are scrutinized here. This allows people to talk about how certain policies
affect their lives.
Tomorrow's People

This programme focuses on gender and youth issues. Here children and youths are themselves producers and presenters. They are trained in all kinds of electronic media work leading to this production. They go into the field, gather content, compile, script, produce and present with the supervision of our radio and drama producers and trainers. The programme targets sensitive issues like education and livelihood. Gender based violence issues are also central here. The programme is aired twice weekly for 30 minutes on 45 Monrovia and rural community radio partners. Each programme uses a storyline to address child protection, women, children, and youth rights and other issues of concern to children, families and policy makers.
