Youth to take over Gambian radiowaves on the ICDB

Two-time ICDB regional award winner Gambia Television and Radio Services (GTRS) is Gambia’s only national public service broadcaster. Producer Nfansu Jamba wrote to us about their all-youth programming plans for this year’s ICDB celebration:Preview

“I am busy training my kids on news reading in English and local languages.  I went to schools in the rural areas to record some programme materials in the local languages to be broadcast [on the ICDB]. On GTRS/Radio children will produce and present all our programs that day and no adult voice will be heard on the radio.  They are trained on how to operate our studio equipment.  Apart from that, they are also invited to the state house to ask the president about the government’s stance on the welfare of children.  The ICBD on GRTS/radio also involves a lot of activities such as a music festival and a dancing competition.”
