Global Reach: Grantee Partners

Children’s Radio Foundation


Children's Radio Foundation uses radio to create youth opportunities through dialogue, participation, leadership and active citizenship in communities across Africa. The work is guided by a vision of young people sharing their future and strengthening themselves, their families, and their communities. Issues addressed by youth reporters include adolescent health, climate change, HIV and AIDS, human rights, equal rights, and migration.


EMpower’s Current Grant to Children Radio Foundation

EMpower's 1st grant to Children Radio Foundation (CRF) will help develop a pilot project focusing on mental health, its relation to the trauma, different social pressures, and youth experiences in South Africa. The project will primarily center on young women's life experiences who will also form the majority of the advisory group and trained young reporters. In all, 33 young people (21 women 12 men) will participate in the pilot project. They will take an active role in researching, curriculum development, and producing 8 pilot shows on two radio stations in the Western Cape.

You can support our work with Children’s Radio Foundation and our other grantee partners.
