Excerpt from Kantunya Kamunsabata magazine programme that was aired on 12th November 2016 on the Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation (ZNBC) TV1. The programme, which is in the Tonga Language, talks about how PSAf is supporting rural communities with environmentally friendly wind up and solar powered radio sets, voice recorders, as well as bicycles to facilitate engagement between community members and duty bearers on development issues. An updated version of the programme, with English subtitles, will be shared soon.
