REFRAKA is a network that supports women in Haiti to take an active role in the management of community radio. Through training, REFRAKA strengthens the technical skills of women who work in this sector and offers workshops to women and men to encourage them to change the way they report on women and issues affecting women, such as gender-based violence. The aim is to change prevalent stereotypical perceptions of gender roles in Haiti. The amendment was in response to hurricane Matthew, which left large parts of Haiti in ruins. The extra funding helped the women of REFRAKA repair their facilities in order to resume their broadcasting on health, safety and emergency aid issues.
