Radio listener clubs for women have been established in the towns of Rumbek and Wau in South Sudan.

The UN cultural agency (UNESCO) is working with the South Sudan Women's General Association and a local radio station to promote freedom of expression for women in the country through the use of radio.

The radio listeners clubs aim to enable women across the country to talk about issues that are important to them, such as girls' education and access to clean water.

Sarah James Ajith, Chairperson of the South Sudan Women's General Association spoke with Sworo Charles Elisha about the benefits of radio listeners clubs.
