About Radio Active

Radio Active has been working with several NGOs working with particular interest groups or working in a geographical location for community mobilization. The kind of engagement is primarily to give an opportunity for different interest groups to get a voice, and for content development, community participation, etc.
Awareness creation through meetings, shadowing, networking with community leaders, etc. is the first step in the engagement process. As the second step, Capacity Building Workshops in Radio Production are held. Formation of a small team who decide the content is the third step. This is followed by a full fledged RJ training wherein a volunteer from the com- munity will spend time learning at the station. This will be followed by conduct of outreach activities to promote awareness or look at community based projects for constant engagement. Once this type of practical collaboration gets shape, one member selected to work full time at the station (due publicity is given). There are constant meetings held to evaluate progress, solve grievances, etc. This way the partnership is not only professionally run, but also ensures capacity building of the community members to run the radio station.

Community media is any form of media that is created and controlled by a community, either a geographic community or a community of identity or interest. However, if the fundamental premise of the media is to engage those groups that are categorically excluded and marginalized from the media-making process, it will be included on this website, even if it is not explicitly created and controlled by the community.
