"I thought getting into a relationship with an older man was the only way to meet my needs, but suddenly things started to go wrong. It was torture. Whenever I was alone, I would tune into a youth program and that's where I gathered the courage to get out of the mess I was in."
-16 year old Florence on how a DRP program helped her escape child marriage.
Developing Radio Partners improves lives by empowering community-based broadcast and social media worldwide. Programming supports local efforts to raise awareness about critical issues, share information, and support changes in behavior. DRP engagements help curb environmental degradation, reduce health risks, empower women and strengthen communities.
"The ultimate beneficiaries of effective radio programming are those individuals whose lives have been enriched, whose voices are now heard and whose lives are changed - and sometimes saved - by what they hear on the radio."
-Bill Siemering, founder of Developing Radio Partners and one of the founders of National Public Radio
