<p>MOP Community Radio has created awareness on clean environment and global warming through a programme called SuthamSugatharam. Another example of impact made by the radio comes from the self help group whose members are now more aware of banking procedures and many women have begun their own small enterprise by taking bank loans. Kasumelakasuvandu, a programme for women&rsquo;s empowerment initiated in 2008, has brought together almost 2,500 women for celebrating the SamathuvaPongalfestival in 2012.&nbsp;</p>
