World Radio Day 2013: Community Radio in Francophone Africa [French] Sat, 2013-02-09 21:01

For World Radio Day 2013, Pauline Roland of SOAS Radio looks at community radio in Francophone Africa as an efficient grassroots development tool, providing access to the information in local languages to people living in remote areas of the country. In Senegal, for example, community radio is reducing dangerous home-births and female genital mutilations, and also impacting on the economy by giving women access to knowledge on how to become an entrepreneur.
