STAR Radio Provides Liberia with Independent News

Jun 30, 2008

STAR Project Fully Funded!

Humanity United’s Contribution Fully Funds STAR Radio Project Site!

One of our top goals this year at STAR radio in Liberia is to broaden our base of support by enhancing our income-generating activities (advertising, sponsorship, and training of other journalists) and to find new types of donor support. We at STAR radio are very pleased to announce that this goal was achieved this year when Global Giving ( agreed to our request to include STAR Radio on its internet platform and when Humanity United, a grant-making organization based in California, decided to donate $130,000 to STAR Radio in Liberia through Global Giving. Many thanks to both for their generous assistance and support to STAR radio!

Please visit our new STAR radio project site which highlights our innovative activities in strengthening our sustainability activities. Our goal is to become self-sufficient in 2009 - and we are well on way already! With the Humanity United grant we have hired a Marketing and Sales Director, significantly enhanced our sales force, and strengthened our journalist training course offering.

Very Best, STAR radio Staff

    Marco It's great to hear when a lofty but realistic goal is reached. I'm sure it took some effort and patience but it look slike it paid off!

About Project Reports

Project Reports on GlobalGiving are posted directly to by Project Leaders as they are completed, generally every 3-4 months. To protect the integrity of these documents, GlobalGiving does not alter them; therefore you may find some language or formatting issues.

If you donate to this project or have donated to this project, you will get an e-mail when this project posts a report. You can also subscribe for reports via e-mail without donating or by subscribing to this project's RSS feed.


Thanks to 16 donors like you, a total of $75,050 was raised for this project on GlobalGiving. Wonderful!
