This audio piece gives an indication of how radio is being used in South Africa as a very powerful medium for youth to give young people a voice and connects them with their communities. It is also through this medium that young reporters are able to develop and refine their journalism and life skills to make a great impact in their communities. The fact that BBC Radio Oxford recognizes this initiative is a great bonus for the young reporters. Big up to Children's Radio Foundation.

What can I say, South Africa has always been that country for me. I want to go there so badly. After I read the very well written article by Aulia (http://bit.ly/LlBZjH) from Indonesia who was talking about her love for India, I thought to myself, "hey, why not pen down something about my most favorite destination as well." This thought brought back all those wonderful reasons I have for South Africa. Have you ever heard someone speak zulu? They have this thing where they do...

Under the theme of environment, I decided to tackle Energy; its impacts, merits and demerits. The environment is a place that is a home to all living things.

I thought to myself, ''Where will we live if the environment is destroyed?'' Most forms of energy have negative impacts on the environment yet we still use them. Why? Hydro-Ele...

Tragedy after tragedy, same topic every decade with no absolute idea to do away with the scourge. Climate change with a negative effect in the lives of the old, the young and more especially the youth who are considered to be the leaders of tomorrow.

The natural causes of climate change is addressed by a layer which protects us from the harmful rays of the sun; this protective layer is called the ozone layer. But the activities undert...

In South Africa, music is and always has been a form of escape for most of the young people, especially those from disadvantaged communities, from the harsh realities of the lives that they are living and it is through music that most of the young South Africans are able to realize their dreams live their passions. Here is an example of a young man whose life has been difficult and has used music as an inspiration to realize his dreams and inspire other young South Africans.
