Challenge

People in rural communities throughout Nepal struggle with reproductive health problems, HIV/AIDS and child trafficking because information about these issues is unavailable. Much of the country’s population is not only illiterate but remote, and is therefore impeded in accessing information. Our radio broadcasts – through satellite radios and community partner AM/FM stations – currently reach 9 million rural Nepalese with vital education about these challenges.

Solution

Expanding our radio audience to 10 additional rural communities that lack AM/FM reception, providing them with satellite radio receivers, as well as ongoing training and support of local peer educators for discussion groups about the radio programs.

Long-Term Impact

More informed attitudes and behavior toward the issues addressed in the programming, with women empowered to take control of their health and well-being.
