This call for proposals seeks to strengthen the communication capacity of community radio stations in Latin America, Namibia, Botswana, Nigeria, South Africa, Nepal, and India. Additionally, this call for proposals is specifically geared towards those radio stations that have demonstrated work in the area of revitalization of Indigenous languages, and to those that have promoted access to and educational outreach to Indigenous youth within their communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. Indigenous community radio stations that need to acquire transmitters and complementary equipment are encouraged to apply. The maximum grant amount awarded will be $4000 USD.
These grants will support projects in the field of Indigenous community radio that meet the following criteria:
- Promote educational practices via community radio, literacy, and remote education during the pandemic, especially where Indigenous communities have difficulty accessing the internet.
- Strengthen and use Indigenous languages within their programs.
- Radio stations that have recently started similar projects which are ongoing for at least 6 months, and are developing content geared towards children will be considered.
