Training of Facilitators: Community Radio Installation, Broadcast and Operation in Bangladesh
A three days long training workshop titled, ‘Training of Facilitators: Community Radio Installation, Broadcast and Operation’ has inaugurated today in IDB Bhaban, Dhaka.
The event has organized by Community Radio Academy and Bangladesh NGOs Network for Radio and Communication (BNNRC) (19-21 June 2010) with the support of Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA). The community radio initiators who received government approval to operate station will join the training as a last time preparation for kick-off.
Recently, Bangladesh government approved 14 initiators for installation of community radio stations in different part of the country. This is the first time in Bangladesh history, media diversification is allowed community people to involve in broadcasting. It is a rare occasion for us to promote community participation in media and communication sector, and foster community driven development process in the country. It is high time for initiators to develop capacity in the areas of station management, programming, content development, human resource and financial resource management, business plan development, committee formations, issue based guideline development, volunteer management, and so on.
Community Radio Academy and Bangladesh NGOs Network for Radio and Communication BNNRC has been leading the community radio initiatives from its inception. As part of this, the training workshop has designed for the station managers and initiators for better understanding and hand-on experience sharing for successful station operation. A panel of practitioners and professionals will be conducted the training based on realistic needs.
We hope after attending the training the target beneficiaries will be able to design their own strategies related to station operation as guided in the policy.
