The women’s rights radio station that we support through our partners, Wangki Tangni, changes people’s lives and brings communities together.
Men and boys who listen to the radio station have reported they changed their behaviors after learning about the impact of violence. They hear the voices of women’s human rights defenders on the radio, spreading the powerful message that women have the right to a life free of violence, and those broadcasts trigger new conversations with men and boys.
The radio also serves as an important way to communicate across communities, as people are able to call in and send greetings to friends and family in other towns. This is especially important for the most remote communities, who reported that they felt abandoned and alone prior to the launch of the radio station. Thanks to your support, we are making strides to reduce violence in communities and help families stay connected!
