Through their journey down Letaba road, Brandon, Keith, and Jameel quickly realise that appearances may not be the entire story and that there is much more to their neighbours than they think.
Youth reporters Brandon (14), Keith (13) and Jameel (11) live and attend school in Manenberg – a poor residential area on the outskirts of Cape Town, South Africa beset by high levels of unemployment, substance abuse, gang activity and violence. For the past year they have been coming to the local Community Centre to attend weekly radio workshops with the Children’s Radio Foundation.
Clemence Petit-Perrot is a Trainer and Project Manager at Children's Radio Foundation (CRF). Through the use of radio and other existing low-cost technologies, CRF creates innovative media content made by and for children, giving young people a voice, connecting and empowering them to contribute to individual and social change.
Your donation to the Third Coast International Audio Festival makes it possible for us to share creative and compelling radio stories with listeners across the globe, and to champion the ever-growing community of producers who bring this incredible work our way.
