One educational episode
In the developing world, very few have access to education and information on social services. In order to improve well-being of these populations, it is crucial to distribute information in a way that is easy for people to understand regardless of their literacy.
Equal Access' 30-minute radio programs, broadcasted via satellite and FM/AM radio, contribute to empowerment of communities in the developing countries by providing critical information on people's rights, education, health, livelihood and social services. Listeners learn critically needed information and new perspectives through engaging radio series, often with a drama component. Soap opera-like series encourage continued listenership and allow listeners to identify with real-life situations. Local partners work with Equal Access to create targeted, educational, relevant and readily usable content for the radio programming, by determining specific community needs.
