Our guiding principles

A simple idea motivates the Children’s Radio Foundation: If young people are given the tools and skills to express their ideas and share their stories, they will be able to access a world of wider opportunities.

Since its founding by Elizabeth Sachs in 2006, the Children’s Radio Foundation has created a network of more than 1700 trained youth radio reporters across six countries in Africa, who broadcast on local and national radio stations and via social media.

With our main office in Cape Town, Children’s Radio Foundation is a registered non-profit organization in South Africa, The United States, and The United Kingdom.
