Saboba Northern Ghana
WHO WE ARE Radio Gaakii (meaning Faith) was birthed in June, 2011 to edify and improve the lives of indigenes and residents in the Eastern Corridor of the Northern Region of Ghana. The radio station is one of three others, Nkwa at AsinFosu (Central Region) and Nkonim at Asamankese (Eastern Region), which make up the Theovision Radio Network. As policy makers initiate social intervention programs, Radio Gaakii presents the much needed platform for breaking down these policies to the natives through carefully crafted culturally relevant programs. Radio Gaakii, located in Saboba, about 36 miles to the east of Yendi, can be heard in over 10 political districts in the North Eastern Corridor of Ghana where over one million people reside. The station broadcasts in Likpakpaln (Konkomba) and Dagbani, the native languages, in order to be culturally relevant, and also in English to encourage worldwide integration and development. By broadcasting in local languages, the station has successfully recruited and trained some locals to present various programs to great effect.
