Amplifying Voices, Spreading Knowledge: GOALPrime's Radio Initiatives in Nigeria

In the vast landscapes of Nigeria, radio waves carry more than just music and entertainment. Effective communication is key to reaching communities and fostering positive change, in the dynamic landscape of humanitarian and development work. Recognizing the power of radio as a medium to amplify voices and spread knowledge, GOALPrime Organization Nigeria continuously carries out two impactful radio programs aimed at engaging communities and promoting dialogue on crucial issues.



Da Rarrafe Yaro Kan Tashi: A Child-led Radio Program


One of GOALPrime's flagship radio programs, "Da Rarrafe Yaro Kan Tashi," is a child-led live radio program that has been running successfully for three seasons now. Imagine a radio program where children are not just passive listeners, but active participants, shaping content and engaging with critical issues that affect their lives. This is the aim of "Da Rarrafe Yaro Kan Tashi," in collaboration with UNICEF Nigeria and support from KFW. This innovative initiative creates a platform for children in Borno State to engage with humanitarian and development stakeholders, including the private sector, on issues that directly affect them.





Through "Da Rarrafe Yaro Kan Tashi," Borno's children have a voice – a platform where they can share their experiences, concerns, and aspirations. The program serves as more than just a radio show; it is a catalyst for meaningful dialogue and action, empowering children to actively participate in shaping their futures.



Humanitarian and development actors utilize this platform to sensitize Borno's children about various interventions targeted at improving their well-being and that of their caregivers. From health and education to protection and psychosocial support, "Da Rarrafe Yaro Kan Tashi" bridges the gap between stakeholders and the communities they serve, fostering understanding, trust, and collaboration.




Lafiyarmu Jarinmu: Promoting Public Health and Hygiene


In addition to "Da Rarrafe Yaro Kan Tashi," GOALPrime spearheads another impactful radio program titled "Lafiyarmu Jarinmu." This engaging and informative weekly program is dedicated to promoting discussions on public health and hygiene, addressing critical issues that impact the well-being of communities in Nigeria.



Broadcasted on Al-Ansar Radio 96.1FM every Friday from 4 PM to 5 PM, "Lafiyarmu Jarinmu" serves as a vital platform for raising awareness about health-related topics, disseminating life-saving information, and encouraging behavior change.



Through insightful discussions, expert interviews, and interactive segments, "Lafiyarmu Jarinmu" tackles a wide range of health issues, including sanitation practices, disease prevention, maternal and child health, and access to healthcare services. By addressing these topics in a relatable and accessible manner, the program empowers listeners to make informed decisions about their health and well-being.



The Impact of Radio: Empowering Communities, Transforming Lives


The success of GOALPrime's radio initiatives underscores the profound impact of using radio as a medium for community engagement and empowerment. By amplifying voices, fostering dialogue, and disseminating vital information, these programs have become catalysts for positive change in Borno State and beyond.




As GOALPrime continues to harness the power of radio to drive social transformation, we remain committed to creating inclusive platforms where communities can come together, share their stories, and work towards a brighter, healthier future for all.


Through "Da Rarrafe Yaro Kan Tashi" and "Lafiyarmu Jarinmu," GOALPrime reaffirms its dedication to empowering communities, strengthening resilience, and building a more equitable and prosperous society for generations to come. Together, let us continue to amplify voices and spread knowledge, one radio program at a time.


A better humanity is possible.
