Chengetai R. Chikadaya
I am a development communications specialist with over 10 years experience conceptualizing & managing media content development. I have held executive level positions in the Eastern Cape NGO sector, working in the realm of advocacy for access to information & the realization of socio-economic rights. My work has taken me across the province, covering the most remote areas of Qumbu and Mbizana to the more urban spaces of Helenvale in Port Elizabeth and Mdantsane in East London. Every area has a unique set of socioeconomic circumstances which are partially addressed through targeted and project driven communication activities. I am currently working on the development communications of two projects; Cookhouse Windfarm Community Trust Community Social Dialogues in the areas of Cookhouse, Adelaide, Somerset East and Bedford and EU funded, Toward a More Accountable South Africa (TAMASA) whose goal is to build an informed, unified and coordinated network of grassroots organisations and youth focused on Adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Health (ASRHR). I am also the founder and content developer for a writing and editing business called Tweaks. I am passionate about development communication and content development.
