Soot Semee is a Juba Arabic Phrase that means the “Voice of compassion”. Soot Semee Project is a community-centered media project that supports psychosocial healing, stimulates positive behavior change, and builds peace and social cohesion among South Sudanese refugees and Ugandan host Communities living in Northern Uganda.
The project trained and equipped refugees and service providers to create audio content that promotes peace, health, and development. Soot Semee empowered these communities to lead their own social change and development by enabling them to share their stories, personal experiences, and views on the issues that are most important to them and to take action. On Weekly basis, audio content is been created and the podcast is distributed to the listener groups in the Omugo Village Four (4), who listen to the programs on their Soot Semee Speaker-boxes.
The Partner supporting and making the project happen is The Health Communication Resources (HCR UK)
