Call for Applications : #BounceCorruption Radio Ambassadors Innovative Campaign on Anti-Corruption!

Yiaga Africa invites members of the amazing #BounceCorruption Radio Ambassadors Network’ to apply for the #BounceCorruption Radio Campaign on Anti-Corruption.  The radio campaign is aimed at supporting Bounce Corruption radio ambassadors to implement innovative initiatives to promote accountability. These initiatives are expected to inspire citizens’ interest to join the fight against corruption in Nigeria and build a more resilient society against corruption. Yiaga Africa will be providing seed funds to outstanding innovative ideas that leverage radio stations/platforms and social media platforms with content that counter corruption narratives and promote accountability and transparency across the country. 

Yiaga Africa launched the #BounceCorruption Radio Ambassadors network to galvanize citizens’ voices in the fight against corruption and demand accountability through radio. Radio remains a veritable means of communication in Nigeria and reaches a diverse audience across social class, age, and other forms of diversity. 

Building on the lessons from the first phase of the Bounce Corruption project, Yiaga Africa will provide stipends to 10 radio ambassadors to implement innovative radio projects on their radio stations/platforms. The Radio Ambassadors will be invited to submit innovative campaign ideas on anti-corruption radio projects. These proposals will be reviewed by a panel comprising seasoned experts and selections will be made based on set criteria. The panel will provide technical inputs to support the implementation of selected radio projects. Yiaga Africa will evaluate and monitor the implementation of the campaigns in each of the states and the FCT.

Why the Bounce Corruption Radio Ambassadors Contest?

The BC radio ambassadors were selected as outstanding on-air personalities driving important conversations on National issues with wide listenership in their respective spaces of influence. Considering the important role of the #BounceCorruption Radio Ambassadors in mobilizing and increasing citizens’ participation in the fight against corruption, Yiaga Africa will be providing seed funds to selected Radio Ambassadors. To this end, Yiaga Africa calls on its Bounce Corruption radio ambassadors to submit proposals with innovative ideas on radio projects targeted at stimulating citizens’ participation in the fight against corruption in Nigeria.
