Radio for and by young people on sexuality in CAR and Congo
The topic of sexuality is taboo in the Central African Republic (CAR) and the Democratic Republic of Congo. In these strict hierarchical societies it is often difficult for young people to approach each other or the older generation with questions on sexuality. By creating radio programmes on sexuality with young people, Free Press Unlimited ensures they can learn in a comfortable and safe way and share ideas on their sexual and reproductive health and rights.
