Bulungula Radio and Children’s Radio Foundation

At the beginning of May we received a delightful visit and community radio training programme from the Children’s Radio Foundation (CRF). The team from CRF covered all the costs of their visit and trained 12 of our radio DJ’s for one week. The training sessions were lots of fun and helped our team work on all aspects of good radio management practices, technical and programming skills. The Bulungula Community Radio is completely staffed by volunteers, young people from our community and runs from 6am to 6pm, 7 days a week. It is amazing to see the energy with which the youth have embraced the project and how quickly it has spread: providing a tool for the Bulungula Incubator to host talk shows and infomercials about education, health, environmental  and Farming topics and a vehicle for creative expression and building social cohesion in our community.
