Women"s FM coming to Her Farm, fall 2017

Women's Radio in Nepal
Women's Radio in Nepal

Low-power, women owned and operated FM radio is coming in fall 2017 to Her Farm.  One of the women who lives at Her Farm is a nationally known journalist and was a radio announcer for four years, prior to moving to Her Farm. People in the village listen to radio as their primary source for news and entertainment. A low-power FM station will reach the entire population of Mankhu, where Her Farm is located and the villages of Goganpani, Chakmaki, and Mahadevbesi. A total population reach of approximately 2,200 people.  The programming for this station will include local news, radio drama, programs on women's health, women's talk radio with local women discussing issues and challenges relevent to every day life for women in the villages as well as English language lessons and local musicians and singers. Much of the broadcasting equipment is already in place and we have applied for a license as a "community radio station" with the Government of Nepal. 

It's truly exciting to think that our Her Farm women will be able to provide media communication that is focused on women in a nation where very little media is directed at women, and virtually no media is 100% women owned and operated. We hope all of you will help support women's FM radio in Nepal.
