Mark Bashore and his team from Digital Kitchen in the U.S. will create a worldwide radio channel for children aged 8 to provide knowledge, insights and perspectives on aid, and promote connections between the developing and the developed world. By focusing their approach on the young population, they hope in time to transform the "have and have not" concept of aid. The channel will broadcast aid-related first person stories, music, and cultural exchanges. Radio remains the dominant media in the developing world, and radios are cheap and durable. They will analyze possibilities for the manufacture and distribution of cheap radios, and develop and assess the feasibility of the proposal, and test it with children in the US, Europe, and developing countries.
