Ruthumathi - 2 (Kannada)

Lakshmi, walks towards the meeting place where she and friends along with their siblings gather to do their homework, talk and play near the empty plot next the PHC. Unusually quiet, and distant, her friends Kavitha & Ranjitha notice her sullen mood and enquire what’s wrong. Lakshmi, then goes on tell her friends, that she is tired and scared as she is bleeding from below and she does not know what to do. Brushing her concern side, her friends congratulate her and tell her that “she has got her periods”, and she must be happy about it.  One of her friends gives her a pad and shows her how to use it. Ranjita, thinks it is important for Lakshmi to be aware of menstruation and suggest they go to Radha Miss, who had given them an orientation on “Good touch & Bad touch” in their school.

Radio Active CR 90.4

<p>Radio Active&rsquo;s vision is to utilise the power and reach of radio to inform, educate, engage, celebrate and empower diverse communities. The station also looks at working with socially committed groups, educational institutions and corporate bodies to promote community learning. Radio Active looks at engaging in community-based projects to strengthen networks for sustainability.</p>

<p>Since its inception in 1991, the JGI Group has been actively involved with the empowerment of different communities through quality education. Radio Active CR 90.4 MHz was started by JGI in June 2007 as a part of the organisation&rsquo;s social outreach programme that could also help its mass communications students get a hands-on to their education.</p>

Content is yet to be updated by the station.

<p>Signature Programmes: Active Bangalore, Shikshanaedu Nana Hakku, Aashitaru, KasaShramikaParisaraRakshaka, Active Dasarahalli Community Participation: Before the starting any programme, a focus group discussion is held for inputs from different stakeholders following which each programme is guided by a programme committee that consists of members from all the stakeholders, who meet once a month with inputs from their respective communities. Innovations in Format: Our innovative formats include radio drama, use of folk art like kamsale, poojakunita, harikatha, veeragase for programming. We are presently exploring radio diary and radio documentary format.</p>

<p>Jain University funded the station. At present, JGI helps us with major part of the funding. However a few in-house projects like life skill training programs for private schools and recycling of waste within the University campus help sustain the funding. In addition, the Community Radio is working for government sponsored like DST&rsquo;s Science for Women&rsquo;s Health and Nutrition.</p>

<p>In the past five years of operations, the most important lesson learnt is the value of partnerships and networks, without which the station could definitely not exist. Through our partnership approach we have been a part of the solid waste management roundtable, the right to education task force and HasiruDala &ndash; a waste-pickers collective.</p> <p>We believe in celebrating as a way of connecting,like our famous tea sessions which has helped strengthen the bond that we have in the community. In terms of impact, we now have over 12 communities working at the station, the mobilisation of waste-picker community through their favourite programme Hasiru Dala and are also in a position to influence policy on waste management.</p>

<p><strong>Core Team:</strong></p> <p>RJ Priyanka, Jaydev, Vimala Bai, Manjula, Lavanya, Shiv Kumar and R J Srikanth</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>CRMC Members:</strong></p> <p class="DefaultLTGliederung1">There is no restriction on the composition and structure of the management committee and as such the committee is able to make decisions on programs, contents, funding, technology, policies and procedures, legal issues, grievance handling, new community engagement, communication strategies etc.</p>
