On Friday 30th November to Saturday 1st December, in collaboration with four other student media societies at various universities, KTV, an award-winning student television society, will be hosting a 24-hour live stream in aid of Books2Africa, a charity started by University of Kent Alumni.
Be prepared to be entertained and watch us attempt the impossible as we link up live to two other NaSTA award-winning student media stations, Forge TV at Sheffield University, and SUSUtv at Southampton University, from our Kent University Studio. You'll be impressed by musical performances, charity interviews and wacky challenges with various guests from across our universities, including contributions from our own CSRfm Student Radio Station, which operates at UKC and Christchurch University, and our Kent Campus Newspaper InQuire.
Get behind us and donate so we can make as much money as possible to improve access to education, which we all so often take for granted!
A classroom that has no desks, no chairs, no computers and no books! Inevitably, students who attend such schools in Africa are mostly from low income families and obtain a very poor education. In fact, according to UNESCO, more than 60% of students who go to school in Africa will not be able to read or write properly after finishing school. Yet in the UK, students, teachers and businesses throw millions of books away daily and harming the environment! One problem is the other’s solution! Help us educate people and save the environment.
