[creative-radio] Abua Disum Abua Raj on All India Radio


Abua Disum Abua Raj - India
Broadcast since October 2006 on All India Radio, this weekly programme
reaches out to listeners in the Munda-tribal-dominated Khunti region of
Ranchi, Jharkhand, India. Community radio is here used as a platform to
educate and mobilise as well as to entertain, to the end of generating
awareness, capacitating "the voiceless" to demand that their rights be
respected, and - in general - bringing about a "pro-poor" policy shift.
Alternative for India Development (AID) engages local people to either
help as volunteers or to use their interest and skills related to
scriptwriting, performing songs, and developing dramas. Listeners clubs
formed in villages provide AID with a means of seeking feedback about the
programmes and sparking ideas for additional issues to bring to light
through the broadcasts.
