PROJECTS / RADIO: Children in Sierra Leone get a "radio in a box"

The Netherlands has shipped a container with a mobile radio studio to Sierra Leone. The Radio Netherlands' Training Centre donated the studio to War Child, an organisation that assists children and young people in war zones. 
There's a complete radio studio inside the container. Children and young people in Sierra Leone will use the studio to broadcast their own radio programmes. The studio will also enable other children to get experience in making radio. 
Radio is a popular and important means of communication for young people who were traumatised by the civil war in Sierra Leone. They can use it to discuss the problems they still face in their country.
