PMC’s recent rebroadcast of the hit radio show Yam Yankré (“The Choice”) has spurred change in many people’s lives. After hearing the life-changing storylines in the 156-episode show, a trio of loyal listeners are not only promoting Yam Yankré amongst their peers but have also become advocates of a more equitable community, each in their own ways. Inspired by transformative storylines on female genital mutilation, reproductive health, and family planning, these listeners felt that the change they heard in the show could be reflected in their own lives.
