Nearly 600 children live on the streets of Arusha, Tanzania, a town at
the base of Mount Kilimanjaro. The Children's Radio Foundation works
with local organization Mkombozi to train street children as reporters
at a local radio station.
The Children Radio Foundation (CRF) gives young people the skills and
tools to make their voices heard in their communities by training them
as youth radio reporters. With over 50 projects across five African
countries, we partner with local radio stations and community
organizations to create opportunities for broadcast, youth dialogue,
leadership, and social engagement.
Radio is the most effective medium to empower and inform young people
in Africa. In 2011, over 90% of African households had access to a
radio yet only 6.2% of the population logged on to the internet. Radio
is easy to learn, inexpensive to produce, and has the ability to reach
millions in even the most remote corners of the continent.
Broadcasting in local languages and addressing community concerns,
radio facilitates development, youth participation, and the
advancement of human rights.
