Local radio moves Ghana forward

Insisting to be free of political and commercial interests, these young activists fight to keep up their radio stations throughout Ghana and in the air every day. Using their local language and blending popular music with local news, reports and debates providing important information on subjects like health, farming, gender and religion - all subjects which commercial radio stations do not and will not touch upon and air. This kind of local radio production is often the only source to relevant and reliable news and a source of information in a country where the access to internet is still for the few privileged only. The Danish based NGO, Crossing Borders,  is involved and supports the education and capacity building of volunteers, as well as contributes with hardware. More info can be found at: www.Gcrn.org.gh
