Radio project to tune in on Africa's slums

Radio Slum Project to help share experiences of millions of Africans living in impoverished areas.

    According to rights groups, more than half of the population of the Kenyan capital, Nairobi, live in slums.

    A new radio project in the city hopes to change perceptions of the millions of people in sub-Saharan African cities who live in slums.

    The Radio Slum Project seeks to help residents of these impoverished areas share their experiences on radio stations around Africa.
