<p>SRFTI Community Radio works among vulnerable sections of the community. These sections were not completely aware of their rights and entitlements and efforts to address this issue had to go hand-in-hand with making the community sensitive to their needs as well. Other aspects,like influence of the suburbs, non-existence of roads to take pre and post natal women to the health centre and hospitals and a total lack of awareness among these women about their minimum basic fundamental rights were also addressed.</p>
