Preserve Guatemalan Culture With Community Radio



Nawal Estereo is Guatemala's first educational radio station to broadcast in a Mayan language. It is in danger of shutting down for lack of funding. YOU can help this tradition continue.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Radio Nawal Estereo educates and inspires thousands of rural indigenous people in Guatemalan's western highlands. We pride ourselves in providing specialized programming for youth, women, farmers, and other marginalized groups. We also air musical programming as diverse as our community, ranging from pop to marimba to religious music to ranchero.

How will this project solve this problem?

With your help, we can continue to improve our programming, and increase our effectiveness, enriching the lives of countless people.

Potential Long Term Impact

Educational radio has the power to plant sparks in countless people at once. Many of these sparks mature over time into positive attitude changes, and then into positive behavior changes. In this way, the long term impact can be enormous.
