Partnership for India
In India, poverty is widespread and daily life is difficult. Nevertheless, AWR’s programming is making a major impact here. We broadcast in 13 languages on shortwave, and via FM in 21 cities. We now have the opportunity to significantly expand our coverage in India by starting broadcasts in 20 additional cities, nearly doubling our footprint!
Plus, plans are underway to begin broadcasts on medium wave radio from nearby Sri Lanka, in four key Indian languages: Hindi, Tamil, Oriya and Gujarat. Broadcasting from Sri Lanka into India will allow us to bypass the strict scrutiny of the Indian authorities and present our message more openly.
