What is INFANT?

INFANT, (Training Institute for Working Children and Adolescents) is an non-profit organization whose primary mission is to educate children and adolescents through playful activities and artistic training spaces, focusing on themes such as citizenship and active participation.

Where is it carried out RadioInfancia?

The project is carried out in a community in the district of Villa El Salvador, in Lima - Peru. In this place, as in many other communities in the country, families face social problems, such as: family violence, pollution of the environment, lack of access to health services and basic services such as water, electricity and sewage. All of which affect the entire population, but mainly children.

To face these common adversities, children and adolescents formed organizations constituted and directed by themselves. An example of that is the organization “Amigos por Siempre (Friends forever), whose main objective is to raise awareness in the district of Villa el Salvador regarding violence and health. Children and teenagers of “Amigos por Siempre” have been elaborating proposals to improve their families’ quality of life and the situation of their community.

What is RadioInfancia?
RadioInfancia is a pilot that seeks to implement a radio-web as a tool for social transformation made and produced by children and adolescents. This radio-web will allow children express their opinions, suggestions and even proposals to the society they belong to.  Additionally, this radio-web will encourage children and adolescents to continue taking important roles: they are currently the producers, announcers, scriptwriters and website managers.

Why is your solidarity important?

With your support children and teenagers will continue expressing their ideas and opinions to the society and even the authorities. Your support will also allow children and adolescents to publicly express their desire to be considered as social agents of change. INFANT strongly believes that children and adolescents always have something to say and that children should be considered as citizens, regardless of their age. They have been not only promoting their rights but also promoting the construction a new society, where there is not violence nor injustice and pollution, but democracy and equality.

Your contributions will help INFANT set up the radio studio with the basic equipment of for an on-line transmission through a website. What we urgently need are: microphones, audio recorders, microphone stands and cables, sound mixer, amplification, transmission and editing PC, interview table and wiring, interviews set up, and acoustic panels. In that way, children and adolescents will professionally reach as many people as possible

Principles of RadioInfancia.

The budget will be entirely devoted to the purchase and implementation of the RadioInfancia booth and start-up via website.
