Janadhwani CR is a community radio initiative in the most backward area of Karnataka (H D Kote Taluk). It has been set up by Swami Vivekananda Youth Movement to address the community needs of easy access to the information related to the Government initiatives. Since the distribution of the printed matter is a challenge in a hilly terrain, a need was felt to establish a community radio station to address these issues promptly. It was also necessary because in this Taluk, which has a tribal population of 15,000, other mediums like street plays and video shows were hardly effective. Thematic Focus: Health, education and rural development.
