<p>A community which has timely access to information and actively participates in developmental processes. The mission of Janadhwani is to use Community Radio as a means to improve the quality of life of people in H D Kotetaluk in Karnataka.&nbsp;</p>

<p>H D Kotetaluk is considered as one of the most backward areas of Karnataka. The taluk has a tribal population of 15,000. Janadhwani&rsquo;s parent organisation, SVYM, has been working in H D Kotetaluk for the past 24 years and has felt that the community needs easy access to the information coming from the Government. Other modes like street plays, video shows, and group meetings targeted only a small section of the population. In the hilly terrain, the distribution of aeven newsletter or a newspaper is a challenge. To address this issue, we felt that a community radio station was needed in this taluk.</p>

<p>Signature Programmes: Akkahelubaarakka, Raitha Dhwani, Yuva Dhwani, Member Madamma, Kalarava, Arogyadangala, Nanga kadunangajana, NammaYojanegalu and NammaOori Doctor. Community Participation: The community has been involved in all the stages of the program design and development. Their role has been very important in anchoring, identification of resource persons, development of signature programs, content editing and feedback. Innovations in Format: Information of government schemes and policies through interviews involving all stakeholders (local Government officials, beneficiary community and NGOs). Other instances of innovations include compering in local dialect through two characters.</p>

<p>Initially, the setup was funded by BECIL as a part of its community social responsibility objectives. Later up-gradation of the Radio Station was funded by government of Karnataka and technical assistance and content creation training was provided by IT for Change. Presently, the Community Radio Station gets funds from mother NGO (SVYM). In future, we plan to focus on fund raising through local ads, submission of proposals to government departments and other agencies for awareness campaigns related to health, women empowerment, education and agriculture.</p>

<p>Will be updated soon.</p>
