CHEERS: Rauschenberg Foundation Climate Change Fund Grantee | Children's Radio Foundation

We use radio to amplify youth voices across Africa, giving them the skills and tools to speak about their lives

Together with our partner organization Agents of Change Foundation led by a former youth radio trainer and climate-change activist, Brighton Kaoma, we have been selected to receive funding for our new project in Zambia.

We’re excited that Unite4Climate, a youth-led initiative using community radio stations in Zambia will move into action. The radio stations will serve as dialogue hubs around issues of climate change where youth can speak, be heard, and inform their communities. The young reporters in the project will produce daily radio shows, and the interactions with community members and peers will position them as powerful agents in mitigating the effects of deforestation and pollution.

Brighton Kaoma was also recently acknowledged as one of the first ever Queen’s Young Leaders. He received this award in June at Buckingham Palace from Her Majesty The Queen of England. He is definitely a leader to keep watching…!
