Radio Bankasoka

We have just got back, in the middle of the night from a good session at the Radio Bankasoka, the local information station.  Reverend Andy interviewed Isata M, ex-EducAid student who is currently working in the Girls’ Safe House, Sumaila Bockarie, ex-EducAid student who is currently teaching in the Maronka primary school and me about EducAid.
There were a good number of callers and Sumaila and Isata had so much to say, they left with a strong desire to go back and say more.
Isata is hoping to go and study Development Studies at the University of Makeni, with the hope of contributing to their local Radio station while she is there.
This gave her a taste of being on air and she greatly enjoyed it.
May this be the beginning of many sessions where she can stir things up, make people think and laugh and engage people’s concern as she speaks to them.
