Abhivyakti conducts various programmes throughout the year in order to increase community participation. Some of these are mentioned below:
Alternative Media: This a unique model framed with an aim to promote an alternate media that is sensitive to the actual needs of the people. Alternative Media also serves as a platform for people to fulfil their basic political, social, economic, and cultural goals by participating in creating the type of society they desire to live in.
Capacity Building Workshops: These are conducted with an objective to polish articulation skills, better express feelings, emote differently in different situations and enhance communication skills for individuals involved in community development. These workshops are conducted on requests from NGOs and other for profit organizations as well to enhance the softer skills of their staff.
Media Education Programmes: This was initiated with the sole motive to spread awareness among children and equip them with the right skills to express themselves through an alternative media platform.
Community Radio: Community radio programmes which allow people to express their views and opinions without any fear have also been initiated recently. The organization is confident that a great deal of avenues of learning will open up through this Community Radio.
