INFORMING THROUGH COMMUNITY RADIO

Radio is an important form of communication in the rural sector where many remote communities have limited or non-existent access to cell phone service and internet. Our partners at Pro-DIA began a weekly 2-hour radio program in May that provides information on health and prevention topics as well as financial education related to COVID-19. The program is broadcasted in both Spanish and the local language of Quechua on the local radio in Pucará. You can tune into the weekly radio program on Facebook Live here every Friday from 10 AM – 12 PM PET (Peruvian Standard Time).
