Young Reporters’ Network



World Vision and Radio Kwizera work with the Young Reporters’ Network in Kasulu, Kigoma. There are a total of 15 young reporters who can be heard on their programme ‘Sauti ya Mtoto Isikike’ every Saturday from 1100 – 1130 hrs (EAT)

“…In school I was scared and didn’t answer questions but now I answer questions. I’m not afraid anymore. Even if you walk up to me and ask me something, I can reply. This programme has helped me advocate for my fellow children’s rights, especially street children…” - Amani, 13 yrs, Kasulu

“The Young Reporters’ Network has helped me to know a lot of things about children’s rights. In the beginning I used to be very scared while learning but as I got to know more I became brave, now I can do my work well. As a young reporter there are some challenges I personally face which include poor eye sight. When they write I cannot see properly and when they read I cannot keep up. However this does not stop me from doing my part and I am able to contribute my thoughts, for example in the discussion session and other work.” – Leticia, 16 yrs, Kasulu
