Radio Mattoli

<p>Radio Mattoli functions as a platform to give voice to the people who generally have lesser access to massmedia or lack opportunity to express their views or concerns on issues affecting their lives. The programmes opens up possibilities for everyone, especially the marginalised sections, to express themselves socially, economically, culturally and spiritually in order to become masters of their own destinies.</p>

<p>Wayanad is basically an agrarian society. The district is backward as far as the socio economic and educational status is concerned. A Community Radio, it was felt, could be a good initiative to bring a change in the quality of the lives of the people in the region. An application for a Community Radio Station was put in in March 2007. The &nbsp;grant of permission agreement was signed on in June, &nbsp;2009 &nbsp;and &nbsp;on the &nbsp;same day radio Mattoli went &nbsp;on air.</p>
