Youth Radio in Rwanda trains young journalists, offers support to peers

Uploaded by sfcg on Feb 4, 2011

In 2008 with funding from USAID, SFCG launched a radio program for youth ages 12 to 20 called "Urungano" (meaning "New Generation") . Supported by the European Commission, "Urungano" seeks to put young voices on air to discuss the challenges and conflicts in their lives which are often unreported elsewhere. The program's objective is to create a space where youth of all backgrounds can share their experiences and discuss solutions to issues in their lives from their own points of view.

The magazine/chat radio show is broadcast entirely in the national language of Kinyrwanda and hosted by a team of four girls under the age of 18. Representing the diversity of Rwandan youth, the girls conduct interviews each week as well as plan and lead the show which has a live discussion element. As a result, the program works to prepare a new generation of professional journalists for Rwanda.

This video shows one of these young journalists, Diane, speaking about the role of "Urungano".
