Radio Program Gives Listeners a Platform to Improve their Community


After Gaka FM in Malawi did a series on advocacy in December 2023, students at Bangula Primary School asked youth reporters to visit them. The students complained about the lack of learning materials, such as books, inadequate desks, large numbers of students in each class and the school’s decision to do away with the suggestion box. The suggestion box allowed students to complain without fear of retribution. Student Rachel Livingston said the station gave her and the other students a place to air their challenges. “You have empowered us today because we had nowhere to speak our challenges. You are a bridge.”
