  1. Baobabs FM Youth Community Radio

    The first community radio in Senegal was licensed in 1996, and the number of stations has grown since then. Senegalese community radios play a very important role and are strongly rooted in the local communities. They have a strong commitment to provision of information, to raising local awareness of social and economic affairs and to encouraging participation in local life. Some of them have thematic programme campaigns on issues such as HIV/AIDS awareness, prevention of malaria, adult literacy, women's rights, peace in Casamance and care of the environment.

  2. Assistance to Community Radios

    The main problems confronting Haitian community media are a lack of equipment; high cost of internet access in Haiti; the poverty of the communities; insufficient problem of electricity supply, especially in remote areas; training of young coordinators; and the lack of legislation on community media. The development and strengthening of a network of community radios in remote regions of the country would contribute to the creation of a pluralist society and to fostering equal access to information.

  3. Establishment of the Usisya Community Radio Station

    Nkhata Bay (and Usisya, the location where the radio will be installed), are in a 'shadow area' of the communication and information services. Radio signals from the Malawi Broadcasting Corporation and other radio stations barely reach the district, and the citizens have now resorted to Tanzanian Radio stations, thus adversely affecting a sense of belonging to the Malawi nation. The lack of a relevant medium of communication has meant that the population cannot meaningfully participate in issues relating to the rule of law, human rights, development and decision-making.

  4. Andean Animation

    Animación Andina is a project to train young animators from Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru to produce animation media, primarily targeting children and youth, using the imagery, cultural values and traditional story telling of Andean cultures. Animación Andina will be proposed to public and private media sectors as an educational media tool that can be used in formal school education as well as through informal television viewing.

  5. Establishment of the Kwenje Community Radio

    The Chama district is far away (more than 330 km) from Lusaka, Zambia's capital city where the media industries and institutions are located. The national radio signal barely reaches this province and newspapers: monthlies, weeklies and dailies are a rarity. Most of the citizens of this area end up listening to Malawian radio, even reading newspapers from the same country, which is not ideal for the building of a national identity.

  6. Spring Village Community Multimedia Training Center and Radio Station

    While established and secure, the media industries in Jamaica see little competition from new or different organizations in their markets. In addition, there are very few local and community mediums to address relevant issues not covered by the major outlets. This is especially true in rural areas, such as Spring Village in rural St. Catherine. Jamaica is also currently experiencing an exponential rise in its use of and reliance upon computers and the internet.

  7. Creation of a Community Radio Station ''FM Kamole''

    The lack of adequate means of communication and information is an acute problem in the DRC in general, and particularly in the South Kivi province, whose population is forecasted at 4,101,249 inhabitants by 2010. Despite the presence of 2 public radio stations, 6 commercial stations, 2 newspapers, and the 5 foreign radio stations which broadcast in this area, information is only received by a tiny proportion of th epopulation, because practically all these broadcasters are based in Bukavu and only provide coverage for the town and privileged areas on its periphery.
