Partners

  • Uva Community Radio was established through UNDP’s Areas Bosed Growth and Equity Programme with technical assistance from UNESCO and in partnership with the Uva Provincial Council which also provides the space for both of the CMC facilities. As the only licensable entity, SLBC holds the broadcast license and provides the station with a controller (manager) and a technician.

  • UNESCO established the CWC facilities in Bandarawela and provided training and internet connectivity with support from Beigium. Additional ICT equipment to be linked to the main facilities were provided through UNESCO’s global CWC Programme, funded by the Swiss Agency for Development Cooperation.

  • The telecentre facilities are run by local community based Information Technology Societies, which maintain their own bank accounts, membership and executives and recruit, train and coordinate volunteers.

  • A wide range of local government departments, NGOs and community groups collaborate with the CWC.
