Somali Youth Speak Out on New VOA Show

WASHINGTON, D.C. -Young people across Somalia can now discuss issues that matter the most to them on an interactive VOA radio program that focuses exclusively on youth-related subjects and ways to empower one of the largest segments of the Somali population.It’s Your Call, an hour-long VOA Somali Service program, tackles the topics that young people want to talk about, including jobs, education, and drug abuse.

“This is the only show of its kind in Somalia,” says Somali Service Chief Abdirahman Yabarow, “and it’s important that we offer this platform to young people, who now make up about 70% of Somalia’s population.”
