For the past few months, the Children's Radio Foundation has been working with UNICEF to create a nationwide Young Reporters Network in Tanzania. Working with community-based organizations and community radio stations across the country, the CRF trained young people to host ongoing radio shows for their peers in their individual communities. With projects in Dar es Salaam, Ifakara, Moshi, and Zanzibar, each youth group is composed of 15 youth reporters, from the ages of 13-18, who tackle issues that are important to their community. In addition to radio shows, the audio content is posted online via the CRF's Sound Cloud website, allowing the diverse Tanzanian community radio stations across the country to access youth-produced content and to broadcast it, free of charge.

Based in Cape Town, South Africa, the Children's Radio Foundation is a not-for-profit organization focused on developing youth media initiatives and bringing out the voices of young people on the African continent. The CRF carries out training workshops with community partners to create and sustain youth radio projects, and helps to build capacity to implement long-term or short-term media projects. From weekly youth radio shows on community radio stations to school-based reporting initiatives, the CRF has projects in communities in South Africa, Kenya, Rwanda, Zambia, and Tanzania.
