The ‘Astronomy Lakay Vodcasting‘ project broadcast basic astronomy videos in the Haitian Creole language during the COVID-19 lockdown in Haiti. Originally designed for 6 months, it was carried out mainly from April to October 2020 on Youtube and also distributed on other social networks: WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and the blog of the Société Haïtienne d’Astronomie (SHA). A total of 16 new videos were produced specifically for this project, averaging 25 minutes each. MP3 audio versions were also broadcast on SHA networks. The project reached around 400 students, teachers, and members of the general public.
The project was funded by the OAD through the extraordinary call for proposals for COVID-19.
