The December 2004 earthquake and tsunami devastated the communications infrastructure of Indonesia's Aceh Province. Radio stations are being rebuilt to transmit programs to people who lost relatives, friends, homes and possessions. Displaced persons living without electricity in temporary camps and shelters need sustained access to critical news and information. This enables them to access aid, ward off disease, re-connect with loved ones, recover from trauma and rebuild their lives


Identification of radio beneficiaries. Shipping and distribution of solar-powered wind-up radios to displaced people in temporary camps and shelters. Formation of radio listening groups to receive news and information, advice and support

Long-Term Impact

The goal of the project is to enable up to 40,000 displaced Indonesian tsunami survivors to receive sustained access to local, regional and national news and information programs that directly address short-term survival and long-term recovery needs
