Vaiola and Mahe are putting together nearly two hours weekly of valuable health information for women and elders, of interviews with Tongan leaders, community notices, news and music plus lessons in Tongan as a first language. With a deep love of their culture and language the hosts offer a rich source of education and inspiration.
The Tama Tu’u Tonga o Ngaue Trust (TTT) is an organisation focused on eliminating corruption and ensuring the accountability of people in power. The trust strives to educate and encourage Tongans both in Tonga and in Aotearoa to exercise civic responsibility, to engage and to empower themselves and their communities. The radio programme is based on the Trust’s values and incorporates music and prayer as well as interviews with experts and commentators from a range of backgrounds.
Siosateki and Vasilini are active radio listeners for information and entertainment, so that’s what they and their team are offering on Fanongo ki Tonga. With news, music, interviews with community members, and discussion of hobbies and sport they’re keen to give Tongans entertaining radio. Community bulletins and a short devotion round out the show for late night listeners.
