NEWS / PROJECTS / RADIO: UNICEF-supported radio training encourages Haiti’s youth to tell their own story

By Stephanie Power
PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti, 18 November 2011—Young people in Haiti are speaking up about issues that are important in their lives and their stories are being broadcast on Haitian radio, with the help of training and support from UNICEF and its Haitian partner Panos Caribbean.
"Children should have the right to speak in public," said Jean-Pierre Layben, 14, a radio trainee from Port-au-Prince whose story focuses on life-saving health care. "Sometimes children have something important to say, and adults don't let them. I don't think that's right - children have the right to speak."
