A group of Vision AfriKa learners visited the University of Stellenbosch’s campus radio station at the end of June to kick-start what is intended to be a long-term relationship between the two organisations.
The Grade 9 students went along to the MFM_92.6 (Campus Community Radio) studio to learn more about how it operates behind the scenes. In future, both existing Vision AfriKa learners and its Visionary alumni will take part in interviews with presenters to talk about their experiences of the educational development NGO’s programme.
During this initial visit, the students were divided into two groups before being welcomed by the station manager. The first group were given a tour of the University Library, while the second team were given insights into how the studio works, its radio stations and what programmes it puts on.
The tour ended with each learner being recorded dedicating five songs to friends and family members. The recordings will be played over successive days under the title of ‘My Tune’.
