About Radio Dharkan

Since its inception, Radio Dhadkan has covered a population of over 170,000 (in 51 villages and some parts of urban Shivpuri). Of this population, approximately 20.3 per cent are SC, eight per cent are ST, and 43.67 per cent are Other Backward Classes (OBC). One of Radio Dhadkan's major strategic goals has been to include maximum number of people, especially Sahariya from the community in the management committee, radio station staff, and village facilitators. Therefore, these people have been recruited and trained to work in the radio station. Until recently, Radio Dhadkan has begun generating volunteers among adolescent girls; so as to increase community participation. The community has always been included in decision making process regarding programme subject selection, programme development, and programme finalisation. Programmes have holistically focused upon the issues in terms of their content and presentation.

Signature Programme:
Bal Jagat is the signature programme of the CRS. It has been designed keeping in mind the social, mental, physical and entertainment aspects of the children and youth. The programme is a mixed blend of children sharing their thoughts in an open platform, and looking at the above mentioned issues from the community, parents and service providers' perspectives to look for interventions for better growth of children. Bal Jagat includes a component of adolescent programming focusing on adolescent health and social dynamics of girl child empowerment.

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.
