Community Radio Ghana

Radio Guruna in Northeastern Ghana has lost its broadcasting tower to a climate disaster and is fundraising to get about $1,000 US to replace it with a cheaper one. In this interview, recorded at a radio conference in Argentina, Lydia Ajono describes many ways in which the station has benefited and engaged with its surrounding community, helping with big issues like climate change, agricultural conditions, health, employment, empowering girls and youth, and resolving inter-tribal conflict. Lydia Ajono is an award-winning producer and an activist with the Ghana Community Radio Network. Contact [email protected] for info if you want to donate.
