What is this project all about?

"Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls" Guided by UN-SDG 5, Ntombi Langa Radio Project is a women’s radio for rural and urban communities in southern Sahara Africa. It is a platform and & forum that seeks answers for women and girl-child empowerment. It will be a voice-means that spells out the awareness for women and girls and their right to empowerment and self-determination and gives a wakeup call to action. This will be a platform that seeks to understand obstacles that impede women from e.g. accessing equally to resources and provide advice to eliminate and minimize such obstacles to better the situation of women and girls.
Ntombi Langa Radio’s mission is to link African women’s voices in Bremen, Germany, Diaspora & the regions of Sub-Sahara Africa with a concept (themes) based on vibrant communications within diverse communities with the aim of uplifting the lives of rural and urban women and children, incorporating, and developing synergies and local solidarity. Thinking global and acting local.

What is the project goal and who is the project for?

Major challenges facing African women in African communities is to be understood in the context of societal, economic, and political transformations. Despite ground-breaking developments having taken place in Africa especially the processes of decolonization, gender issues regressed: women are still considered second-class citizens by their menfolk. Most women and girl-children are a deprivileged niche. Ntombi Langa Radio, equipped with gender-based transformational themes seeks to address these gender-imbalances. The radio empowers women to find their voice and the courage to change patriarchal settings to transform their lives and of families and communities.
Among many of the envisaged themes: the goal of this project is to establish a link between African women in Bremen, Germany, and the Diaspora African communities with women in the Sub-Sahara Africa, focussing on themes that affect women in situ. Introductory radio themes will focus on human trafficking - migration, child marriages, genital cutting of girls. The push-and-pull migration and its subsequent victimization of young women and girls trafficked to Europe must be seen in context of chronic wars, climate change, partriachy, & cultural beliefs systems that have not changed; etc.
African women in Bremen, through their experience have important information that can protect lives. Perilous journeys made by African women to reach the shores of North African & Europe has claimed hundreds of women's lives. The goal of this radio project is to pass this important information to African women who wish to make perilous journeys to Europe, firstly on foot through the Sahara Desert: the radio informs them about the risks involved; such as deaths through dehydration, abductions to be sold as sex slaves in North African towns; organ harvesting take place in the Sahara where there is no security to monitor most criminal activities adequately that take place in the desert. Information regarding migration and its challenges is of extreme importance: Ntombi Langa Radio’ goals is to inform women while they are still in Africa about the challenges of migration.
