Following on the creation of six community radios in the Casamance built and managed by World Education and financed by individual donors, the Community Radio Network aims to both increase the number of radio stations in the network to ten and to support the network to become a central vehicle for coordinated operations, social and economic development and the promotion of peace in the Casamance.
Through this project, World Education is providing development support for the nascent Radio Network, support and technical assistance to each of the radios, helping to maintain and strengthen the current radio content focus on women and women's rights, and helping with the sustainability of the radios within the network.
