Date: 15 November
Time: 08:30 17:30
Location: Villages in Karnataka

This radio project started its work in Budikote (Kolar district, Karnataka) in 1999 with a needs assessment study, findings of which revealed that the community did want an information centre, which would give them timely and locally relevant information, through audio, a medium which they were comfortable with. With this end in mind began a spate of training sessions for volunteers conducted by experts from All India Radio on programming techniques. As an outcome of these training sessions volunteers began to make programmes on topics such as sericulture, organic farming techniques, child and reproductive health, insurance etc.
