<p>To give voice to the voiceless. To provide education to school dropouts. To increase awareness about health and hygiene. To entertain and educate through songs and drama.</p>

<p>Jadavpur University, Kolkata, on the day of the Bengali New year (14th April, 2008)launched West Bengal&rsquo;s first community radio station, RadioJU 90.8 MHz.&nbsp;</p>

Innovations in Format: Docu-features, drama, feature, experience of the child reporter, mix format etc.</p>

<p>Funding and Partnerships Right from the beginning, JU is providing everything to set up and run the station. The university has created a fund for recurring expenses of the radio. We are also trying to collect advertisements from local businessmen and shopkeepers. We also want to register ourselves under DAVP.</p>

<p>We find nowadays children are not fond of reading story books,so we started Sishu Tirtho, a programme on children&rsquo;s literature, which gets great interest from kids and teenagers who find these stories so fascinating that they skip their sportsto listen to Sishu Tirtho.</p> <p>Similarly, the story of a disabled girl is touching. Since she used wheelchair from her childhood, she was very much neglected by her relatives and schoolmates. After penning and broadcasting a poem, she got positive response from relatives and schoolmates.</p>
