A group of rural women have launched a community radio station in Democratic Republic of Congo's South Kivu province. Radio Babusa FM will take up women and child welfare issues.
An initiative of the women's group Sauti ya Mwanamke Kijijini (samwaki), Radio Babusi will broadcast in the local language Mashi, Swahili and French.
