WHAT WE DO

DRP works with local radio stations to bring reliable information to those who need it most.

Mission And Vision​

Developing Radio Partners envisions enduring media services that enrich individuals' lives, giving them voice to be active, involved citizens and ultimately transform their communities.

 

We focus particularly where the need for information is greatest, and where radio can have the greatest impact, often in rural areas, in countries with legacies of poverty and political repression. We believe that building a healthy media sector increases the economic and civic well-being of people and contributes to creating a healthy nation.

We are focused on solutions, things that work. DRP gives particular attention to the key development topics of environment, climate change, agriculture, health, and governance.

 Our Approach

  • Assessments of community radio needs

  • Workshops with station managers and reporters on content and skills development

  • Weekly bulletins on timely topics drawn from in-country sources

  • Establishment of Radio Listening Clubs

  • Funds to organize community activities

  • On-site mentoring

  • Evaluation (Baseline and Follow-Up)
