WANTED: At Kalomo Community Radio in Kalomo, Southern Province, Zambia we desperately need good portable tape recorders for the reporters and sets of earphones for use in the studios at the station. For that matter we could use any equipment that would make things easier at the station or money to buy much needed equipment or pay the daily operating expenses.
Well my time in Kalomo is almost over. This afternoon I was given a tour of the new local radio station and launched our idea of an environmental series that will be heard across the District and outlying areas of Southern Province and then across Zambia. I have watched this radio station grow from a concept of my friend Austin to the real thing. Good luck guys. You have my support. Sitting in front of a microphone sure beats riding in the back of an old truck to remote communities teaching about the environment and reforestation.
I am finished my work in Solwezi. This is Alex, African Community Project’s new Outreach Coordinator in Northwestern Province of Zambia. He is excited about all the challenges that we will be facing in a Province of Zambia where it seems that the tree is public enemy number one and racing to cut the last one instead of protecting their best friend.
