SPECIAL PROJECTS: World Radio Day – African youth share their love for radio! | Children's Radio Foundation

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

This year on World Radio Day we took to our social media channels and got everyone involved in sharing what radio means to them! ‘Radio is YOU!’ was the theme for 2017, and we asked our community to reflect on this and share themselves.

Here are some of the best quotes we received on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram from our community of youth reporters across Africa.

“Radio is the best way of passing information and solving conflicts in the society”, says Catherine, a youth reporter from Mwanza, Tanzania.

“Radio is freedom of speech, justice and the voice of the people” Andile Msomi, regional facilitator in South Africa.

“Radio helps us children to amplify our voices and get connected with our peers, parents and leaders. Radio is development” – Bahati Rajabu, young reporter from Mwanza, Tanzania.

“Radio is a platform where people share experiences. Radio is LIFE,” shared Alex, a youth reporter in Mwanza, Tanzania.

“Radio protects my human rights. Radio is the blind man’s vision.” Jackson, BoomTalk Youth Reporter, Limpopo, South Africa

We also launched our YouTube channel and shared some our powerful videos about the work of our youth reporters. Take a look here.
