Radio Program Helps Youth Find Their Voices


After Gaka FM in southern Malawi did a program about youth and policymaking, a local mothers group hosted an event.  Febe Piliminta reminded local and district leaders that “citizens should be consulted in everything regarding policies.” She said it is one way to reduce child marriages in the community. Piliminta, who helped organize the event, met with more than 400 young girls and encouraged them to make sure their voices are heard. One member of the mother’s group in the village, said “more often duty bearers shun the citizens and refuse to hold meetings with us and only do so when they are hunting for votes during election campaigns. We want this to change."
