Trans World Radio’s (TWR’s) Project Hannah has been given an award in recognition of its family-focused broadcasting.
Project Hannah is TWR’s women’s ministry, centred on the radio programme Women of hope, which, according to TWR, brings together practical and spiritual teaching elements under a common theme.
The Association of Christian Media (ACM) for Southern Africa gave it a media award at their annual gala dinner and awards ceremony, hosted in Cape Town.
The trophy is awarded to the member who has done the most to promote the family over the past year, and Project Hannah Africa was recognised for its work in 2015.
The statement said: ‘The ACM judges were primarily interested in media that focused on family-related issues, which emphasised biblically sound principles, nurturing and protecting families in Africa. They were also interested in identifying a winner who applies their media in such a way that it ultimately helps families thrive’.
The Project Hannah Africa team will donate the prize money of 3,000 rand to the Zulu ministry’s Women of hope radio programme. This is currently being aired in more than 11 languages in Africa, six of which are being broadcast from Southern Africa.
