The community radio, run by women, will improve the wellbeing in and around Mhaswad through useful and relevant programming, which will enrich their civic and cultural life.


In order to give a voice to the people of Mhaswad area, Mann Deshi created a community radio, Mann Deshi Tarang. This gives the 18,000 people of Mhaswad area a chance to be heard. Young people and elders will be given the opportunity to exchange their points of view and talk about their experiences. Mann Deshi Tarang’s mission is to provide the people of Mhaswad with a platform to voice concerns, express creativity, promote development, preserve their culture, and communicate with one another.


The community radio station broadcasts for one hour in the morning and one hour in the evening; the broadcast includes targeted programs for women, children, youth, and farmers, with different important topics.
