Radio Station

The Young Foundation Group creates an audio programme at The Circus Space, London, 2009.

The Foundation has always had a close association with radio. We produced an audio diary for BBC Radio Leicester in 2007/8 and will be running a similar diary from Somalia in 2009/10.

In 2008 we were approached by the United Nations MINUSTAH Communications and Public Information Office (CPIO) to create twenty-four Creole radio emissions, each lasting about 30-min, broadcast each week by around 36 radio stations in Haiti, six of which to be in Port-Au-Prince. Test recordings were made but political and technical difficulties meant that the project never went ahead.

The plans still exist and we welcome opportunities to develop community radio world-wide.
