Chicoco Radio is a floating radio station being built by the people of Port Harcourt’s waterfront slums.
480,000 people live in these settlements. The authorities plan to demolish them all. When people protested, they were shot. Tens of thousands have lost their homes.
Chicoco Radio will allow them to reach out and speak up.
From their floating station, people living in the city's slums will be able to demand their rights, campaign for change and celebrate their culture. Built and designed by local volunteers in collaboration with architects and engineers, the floating radio station will be one of the city’s landmark buildings.
