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

Go Back

A few days before the 2016 Youth Radio Awards, we received some some coverage on Umhlobo Wenene FM, the second largest radio station in the South Africa.

Our Young Reporters Network (YRN) project co-ordinator, Busi Hoho chatted to Lulu Haarmans on the ‘Khanya Gqiyazana’ women’s show about the network of young reporters across South Africa that broadcast radio content on a weekly basis, and the power of radio in general. Busi also spoke on air about the differences and similarities of the stories being told by South Africa youth and youth in our other projects in Africa in Zambia, Tanzania, Liberia, Ivory Coast and the DRC. Mostly, we’ve discovered that youth across Africa are dealing with similar issues that affect them and their communities.
