"I was in a city in Holland, Tilburg, the people there don’t even know who is living in the next house. But in Korogocho we know eachother, we live like in a community. And for this community that radio was created to have a platform for discussing the issues they are interested in and giving important information for the community members. There are so many young people who are working towards making Korogocho better. A lot of good things that are happening. You see, like KochFM is such a good thing. You know we have a problem with the mainstream media because they only came to Korogocho when there happend something negative like rape or crime. But if you look at Korogocho again there are so many good things that are happening. There are good musicians who are making it good in Korogocho. Very young people are doing something positive for their community. There is a lot of good things that are happening in Korogocho. So KochFM was also to portrait the good side of Korogocho. Believe, we are not that bad. The things in Korogocho are really, really improving. Organizations like youth groups can at least involve young people who are still in the bad and empower them and show them to bring more energy as force to transform Korogocho. This is the best case of empowering and changing the community. So this empowered young people identify Korogocho as their home – as home that is no longer a slum.“
