Summary

Help support women's radio in Nepal and create jobs for women in media. There are very few women's media outlets in Nepal and this is perhaps the only 100% women owned and operated community radio station. We need to change the narrative about women by changing the narrators to women!

Challenge

Nepal is one of the most patriarchal countries on earth. Women are second-class citizens and their issues seldom are covered by the regular media sources.

Solution

We've started a women's owned and operated radio station in the village of Mankhu, Dhading, Nepal. It's community radio station that features all women staff and programming specific to women. We broadcast daily from 5am til 10pm and on the internet too at www.radiomankhu.com

Long-Term Impact

Radio Mankhu is providing jobs for women in rural Nepal. Our goal is to increase our transmission radius with a more powerful transmitter and antenna, reach a larger audience and employ even more women. Radio Mankhu on the internet
