Welcome to the Radio Workshop Podcast!
In this week’s show we take you to the Earth Child Project at Sakumlandela Primary School in Khayelitsha. We meet some of the “earth children” at the school who are busy with yoga, gardening, worm farming, hiking and lots of other exciting activities.
And later on we’ll meet Mandisa Zitha, and hear about Encounters, the 12th South African international Documentary Film Festival. We’ll find out about what a documentary film is, and hear what they’ve got on offer.

13 year-old Nandi Tokwe is involved in an Earth Child project at her school that forces her to get her hands dirty. But that doesn’t bother her one bit.
Earth Child is also the subject of a film at Encounters, the South African International Documentary Film Festival. The festival starts this weekend in Cape Town, and there are lots of films on show that young people will find very interesting. We spoke to Encounters Festival Director Mandisa Zitha to find out more.
That’s it for this week, join us next week for more from the Radio Workshop. We hope you’ve enjoyed the show!
