According to WSIS action line 9
Bangladesh NGOs Network for Radio and Communication(BNNRC) has been struggling for the last 12 years to open up the community media (including Community Radio, Community Television and Community film) and giving focus on its vital role as voices of the voiceless people. BNNRC has been addressing the community radio & community TV access issue for over a decade, almost since its emergence in the year 2000.

BNNRC works with the same development objectives and mandate with support from Free Press Unlimited.
By implementing this project, BNNRC will contribute to the following expected outcomes of Press Freedom 2.0:
Connecting Voice: Community media and civil society networks from local communities of change contributing to processes of development voicing, reflecting and advocating the views and rights of the marginalised community.
Strengthening Voice: Organizational and financial sustainability of the media and grassroots organizations.
Pioneering Voice: Multistakeholder platforms/networks of excellence(media, civil society and grassroots organizations, universities and private sector) work together to realize new innovations that contribute to pluralistic and sustainable media
