Kalanjiam Samuga

<p>Kalanjiam Samuga Vanoli was established to use information and communication as a tool for change in the areas of poverty reduction, gender and environment to enable the communities in the disaster-prone coastal areas to be prepared for managing disasters and strengthening their livelihoods to cope up with such disasters and to build the skills of the community to prepare and disseminate audio programmes in areas concerning their socio-economic and cultural development.</p> <p>The Community Radio Station is conceived to aid in promotion and preservation of local wisdom, traditional knowledge and skills by encouraging communities to prepare programmes in these areas to create a platform for local youths and students to develop their skills in communication.</p>

<p>With the belief that Community Radio Station can be used to address the community development needs by facilitating cross learning and through information sharing, Kalanjiam was established as a partnership between UNDP and DHAN Foundation to serve communities in the tsunami-ravaged Nagapattinam district which is prone to multiple hazards including floods, cyclone, drought and tsunamis. &nbsp;It was promoted with a belief that a community-run radio would give people a voice, makes them visible.&nbsp;</p>
