THE BARAZA is the development blog page created by DTM. Its main objective is to ensure that the work of development oriented organisations is well known by, and benefit a wide section of the targeted constituencies at the national and grassroots levels. There is a lot happening in the development sector which this media strategy now targets for sustained promotion.
