We use radio to amplify youth voices across Africa, giving them the skills and tools to speak about their lives
On Saturday the Future Positive youth reporters celebrated World Aids Day at the O.R Tambo community centre in Khayelitsha, Cape Town. This picture captures a special moment, where a young mother stopped at the Future Positive stand to write a message on what a positive future looks like for her.
Our partners in the Future Positive initiative Medecins Sans Frontieres organized a fun-filled day, where community members got to learn more about and interact with community organizations working to reduce the spread of HIV/AIDS in Khayelitsha.
The Future Positive youth reporters engaged with community members – sharing what they are learning and doing and recorded interviews, vox pops and poetry for their radio show ‘iKasi Youth Reporters’ on Zibonele community radio station. At their stall they had a ‘Message Corner’ for people to write messages and wishes and a ‘Listening Booth’ for people to listen to some of the radio they have been producing.
Check out more pictures of the day on the Children’s Radio Foundation Facebook page.
Here are a few messages that were written:
‘Try to believe in yourself and live a healthy life. Keep your mind positive and stay strong. Learn to love yourself, keep yourself motivated. Everyone has a right to say a word. Silence kills your immune system. Stay positive. Be strong.’
‘Do what you love, and love what you do.’
‘I wish that the youth always believe that we are the selected candidates, the gift, try to seek wisdom in your heart.’
