*Empowering rural and isolated communities through community radio
development in India*
Our vision is to help isolated and/or economically disadvantaged
communities set up and run participatory, not-for-profit, sustainable
broadcast media, i.e. community radio, as a tool for social and cultural
unification, self-development, empowerment and positive social change.
Working with these communities, we will focus on their needs and by raising
awareness, training & capacity building and overall support, demonstrate
how the simple medium of radio, can help fulfill these needs. We will
further promote universal development goals in gender equality,
public health, the right to education, right to information, welfare and
employment and will operate on the basic principles of cooperation, open
participation and innovation.
