Communal Radio for the Young People of Chincha



The Pro Nino Intimo association will install a sound system in the Sports Villa, in the town of Chincha, for youth at the El Carmen Sports and Life School to use for sports and cultural activities.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The sports-playing, underprivileged youth in the district of El Carmen, in Chincha, do not have a medium of communication for expressing their worries and needs. The Sports and Life school, which fuses sports activities with cultural activities, music, singing, traditional dance, and life-skills training, needs a medium of communication to improve their program. Direct beneficiaries are 50 children; and indirect beneficiaries are the 2,000 villagers from El Carmen, Chincha.

How will this project solve this problem?

Activities: 1. Installation of FM transmitter; 2. Organization of a network for collection of information; 3. Production of radio programming; 4. Radio-usage training programs for youth.

Potential Long Term Impact

Organization of an FM community radio program to spread the values, culture and history of youth from African communities in El Carmen.
