This Malawi Village Harnesses the Power of Radio

The Nkhotakota radio programme in Malawi is being credited with  changing people’s lives. Realising that few other programmes catered for women’s issues, it created a segment where local women are invited to the studio to discuss topics that affect them. At the end of the show solutions are suggested to the topics discussed. The show even empowered a village to successfully demand a bridge from the local government so that its children would never miss school when it rains.
