Background and Mission

Uva Community Radio was established through the initiative of UNDP in cooperation with the Uva provincial Council (UPC) in order to facilitate increased community involvement in planning, implementing and evaluating its poverty reduction programmes, especially agricultural development. UPC runs the station in conjunction with the Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation which holds the license. Telecentre facilities were added to expand use of information and communication technologies by both radio staff on behalf of listeners and directly by members of the local community. With the provincial council as a partner and a province - wide network, the CMCs were designed to improve public services and facilitate information flows, particularly in regards to development and governance. The telecentre facilities are operated in collaboration with local information Technology Societies.
