Vaalwater, South Africa: RadioActive installs radio and recording studios and trains young people at Waterberg Welfare Society!

16th November 2010

Working with New Era Container Conversions and Waterberg Welfare Society, a hospice, wellness clinic and youth centre in Limpopo Province, northern South Africa, RadioActive has designed and installed radio studios into a 12m shipping container, to be used for teaching radio production and recording skills to young people based in the local area.  The first training sessions began on November 12th, with 7 young people aged 19 – 24 learning how to run their own radio shows, record music and promote the positive message of WWS to the local community.

Thanks to Zack Belanger for donating his time to help with the acoustic design of the studios and journalists Jonisayi Maromo of News Flash news agency and David Smith of Okapi Consulting for providing additional radio training workshops.
