USAID distributing 50,000 radios throughout South Sudan

Sudan Man notes USAID's distribution of radios throughout southern Sudan:
50,000 solar- and hand crank-powered radios are being distributed; USAID is helping to organize listening groups; regional resource centers are being set up in six areas to host the groups and provide meeting space and resources for civil society organizations.

USAID is also developing radio-based educational resources, such as classes and teacher trainings, that the listening groups can access.
Note the BBC's new lifeline service Darfur Salaam.
