Activity: Empowering Communities: Strengthening and Building Capacity a Community Radio in Bangladesh
website of the activity
Activity description: Media is considered as a very sophisticated tool for practicing freedom, liberty and democracy. For the first time the community people of Bangladesh are going to have their own media. The local initiators are not experienced in community media operation and management. As a result, strong capacity building support is needed for effective start of this media so that it can meet the overall goal of development for the poor and marginalized. Recently only 14 community radio initiators got approval from the Government to start their operation in Bangladesh. These 14 initiators could become the role model for others new community radio initiators in future. Therefore, to develop these 14 CR operations as the centre of excellence in community radio field, the necessary capacity strengthening activities are needed in a number of areas such as assessing community needs, engaging the community with the local broadcasting activities, station management, news collection, etc.
