Communication strategies that may be more effective to reach out to people that are less privileged economically, socially, and politically:
- Listen to the people and hear what issues are considered relevant and what could be meaningful social changes for them
- Use localized communication (using, for example, metaphors with locally-centered examples, well-known stories, and dialects), in a way that the message resonates with its target audience.
- Empower the audience not only with the media content but also facilitating practices that can improve their lives. Minga Peru’s, for example, not only developed a great relationship system promoting an open dialogue about human rights but also allowed a less privileged group to enhance their lives by training them to have leadership skills, to manage environmental resources and to generate income from different work activities.
