Bangladesh Hatiya: We Have Obtained a Radio License for the CR Station “Radio Sagor Dwip”!

※ For information about “Community Capacity Development for Disaster Risk Reduction by Community Radio” (Hatiya Island, Bangladesh) funded by JICA (Japan International Cooperation Agency), please click here.

On March 4th, the radio license for “Sagor Dwip,” a community radio station forming an indispensable part of our project in Hatiya Island carried out by JICA, DUS (a local partner), and BHN, was finally approved!


Radio Sagor Dwip will now become Bangladesh’s 16th community radio station.

We have been waiting a very long time for this license to be approved, so when it finally was, our staff and the international staff were all full of joy.
Before broadcasting can be started, there are still many things that must be done, such as gathering equipment, doing test broadcasts, and training staff. However, this license approval represents huge progress toward our goals.
This project will soon reach its turning point. We will continue sending notifications about these activities through the BHN webpages and through PR brochures.
We continue to ask for everyone’s full support!
