We use radio to amplify youth voices across Africa, giving them the skills and tools to speak about their lives
Youth Reporters from Siviwe House in Woodstock had the opportunity to experience a live TV show from behind the scenes as guests at Ukulele Media studios in Cape Town. Hectic 99 is a TV Youth show which speaks about issues related to young people in South Africa and the world.
The youth reporters described the excursion afterwards as an eye -opening education in how a television show is made. They relished the opportunity to meet and spend some time doing recorded interviews with well known television celebrities.
The recordings at the studio were part of a broader radio feature that the youth reporters put together about television and its role in how society consumes information and general entertainment.
Siviwe is a registered residential Child and Youth Care Centre for young girls who have previously lived, worked or begged on the streets of Cape Town, or who have been placed there by the Children’s Court. Siviwe is a longer-term residence for girls who are forging a new life and identity for themselves after having spent time at the street intake shelter. The Siviwe House youth reporters constitutes one of three local incubator projects the Children’s Radio Foundation supports with once a week facilitated group workshops using radio as a means for expression and dialogue on issues the youth reporters choose to explore.
