16th June 1976 was a day that reverberated globally the moral and ethical premise of South Africa’s human rights. The apartheid regime’s brutality to thousands of youths protesting the unjust education system made it more so clear that the youth have a voice and the power to be heard.
In honour and commemoration of 16th June 1976, Radio 786 has been empowering youth from Bridgetown High School, Islamia College, and the Irshad Institute through workshops, job shadowing, and media production to vocalise their struggles, their minds, and their hopes. Along with challenging examinations, the participating youth have dedicated their spare time to making a difference.
Tune in to Radio 786 on Youth Day as South Africa’s budding leaders take over the running of the station, producing and presenting shows, managing the technical controls and running the administrative tasks like answering the phones and ensuring everything is running smoothly.
