Pamoja kwa muziki,
The Radio Tanzania Team
Today Rebecca’s interview with Vijana FM went live on their website. Vijana FM is a web-based platform meant to encourage dialogue, debate, and education among the youth of East Africa. Their moto is “Soma. Sikiliza. Angalia. Changia.” (in English, Read. Listen. Watch. Contribute.).
Vijana is the Kiswahili word for “youth,” and on the Vijana FM platform, young people can come together to share, exchange, and develop ideas for sustainable development in East Africa. They concentrate especially on sustainable social entrepreneurship and believe that “informal education” (the process of acquiring knowledge through human experience, collaboration, and interaction) is as powerful as institutionalized, formal learning that occurs in more structured environments.
To read the interview, go here. There are also some beautiful photos by Jonathan Kalan included in the interview.
