Global kids radio seeks cooperation, contributions

A German-based youth radio program for kids ages 3 -13 worldwide called
Radijojo is inviting radio journalists from around the world to contribute
and become part of its network.

Radijojo, which invites children to make their own shows, currently
produces educational and cultural content with the contributions of
schools, communities, radio stations and child projects from countries in
five continents.

Programs are focused on early music education, transnational
understanding, health education, ethics, environmental education, science
programs, language learning, promotion of peace, political awareness,
children's literature, etc.

Interested journalists should contribute radio productions in English,
French, Spanish or German. Technical support is also needed for regional
parts of the network, such as local radio stations and children projects.
