We just came across this mix of the programs we made during our radio training program with RadioActive UK. Have a listen!
Radio Tsavo is a community based Radio Station- an idea that Amara Conservation had when recognizing the communities in remote areas in Tsavo lack access to a lot of information.
Unlike other media types, such as newspapers, radio stations have the ability to become a reliable source of information in areas where information is scarce. People from all around the County can search the airwaves for reliable sources of information even when phone lines are cut and the Internet is blocked. Rural communities benefit from local radio stations that provide news about local issues in their own language that would otherwise not make national headlines.
We know that “Change is the end result of all true learning and the function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically” and by sharing knowledge, experiences between communities will bring distant communities with one another.
