We train high school-age youth to become reporters who broadcast their stories and experiences on community radio stations in six countries across Africa. Our youth reporters take on issues that affect young people in their community: access to education and health services, gender and power, LGBTI issues and human rights, employment and opportunity, climate change and the environment.
Speaking in local languages and in a youth-friendly style, they interview community members, host debates, and bring out local perspectives in their weekly youthtargeted radio programmes. Our work uses youth involvement in radio to create opportunities for dialogue, skill building, and advancing human rights, by training and mentoring a new generation of broadcasters and thought leaders across Africa.
