We use radio to amplify youth voices across Africa, giving them the skills and tools to speak about their lives
New issue-based training kicked off in Lusaka, Zambia this past week. Young reporters learnt new ideas on the topic of water, droughts and floods to implement new radio shows at their community radio stations.
In the last 30 years, the temperature has been increasing at 0.6 degrees per decade in Zambia and all areas in the country have been experiencing climatic changes, which have contributed to floods and droughts. The training for our young reporters focuses on these issues, giving capacity to the youth reporters so that they can produce more shows on floods and droughts and help find solutions. Our regional manager, Leader Kanyiki (in the red shirt) is traveling to all the young reporter sites to support them with the training.
Exfrontiers is a South African youth television programme on SABC3 that shares up-to -date, cool tech trends for teenagers. A few weeks ago, our youth from COSAT High School in Khayelitsha, and our project co-ordinator, Linda Daniels were featured on the show!
This weekly show showcases teens making strides in technology, and featuring the Childrens’s radio Foundation on this platform proves that radio is still very fresh, alive and relevant for today’s youth!
