A group of five people involved in Mozambique community radio visited Nepal in early December to gain from the Nepali experience in running successful community radio stations.

The mission was jointly organized by the UNESCO offices in Kathmandu and Maputo, together with the Community Radio Support Centre (CRSC) in Nepal. 

Ever since Radio Sagarmatha, the first community radio in South Asia, was established with the support of UNESCO in 1997, Nepal has gained remarkable experience in managing community radios and Community Multimedia Centres (CMCs). 

The main goal of the mission was to learn from these experiences in order to build the capacity of Mozambican community radio stations and CMCs. 

The delegation held talks with the CRSC and visited Radio Sagarmatha in Kathmandu, Radio Mukti and Jagaran in Butwal, and the Buddhanagar CMC in Lumbini. 

“We had fruitful discussions and gained very valuable insights on the sustainability of community radio in Nepal. They will help us in Mozambique when we continue our plans to strengthen the sustainability of community radios and CMCs in Mozambique,” said Ananias Chomola of the UNESCO office in Maputo.
