Four young people are heading off to Cape Town, South Africa tomorrow to work with Bush Radio – a youth run community radio station. They are part of a United Youth programme run by youth organisation Public Achievement for unemployed young people from across Belfast.

During their 10 day trip they will help to organise the “Media Kidocracy Konference” for children and young people from around Cape Town, and they will work at Bush Radio – including being interviewed on radio and making their own programme.

Craig Murray, Shanti Mawhinney, Sarah Louise Duffy and Aoibhinn Di Torí are all participants in pilots of the “United Youth” programme which is part of the NI Executive’s good relations programme administered through the Department of Employment and Learning. The group will be accompanied by project Coordinator Chiara Cariddi.

Paul Smyth, CEO of Public Achievement said “We are delighted to be sending this group to Bush Radio. This relationship is about exposing our young people to some of the best community radio practitioners in the world as well as learning about the history of South Africa and the challenges it still faces. We believe it will be a lifechanging experience for the group – and will help them to better understand diversity and the relationship between people and communities across the world”.
