FemmepowermentAfrique is a research project based at the University of Sheffield in the UK. We analyse the impact of radio in Burkina Faso, Mali, Niger and the DRC and cover a range of themes particularly women’s empowerment and more recently Covid-19. We work with Studio Yafa in Burkina Faso, Studio Kalangou in Niger, Studio Tamani in Mali, and Studio Hirondelle RDC in the Democratic Republic of Congo, who are run by Fondation Hirondelle.
