NCRF World Bank Pilot Project for Limpopo Station Support

“National Community Radio Forum/World Bank Institute Voice and Media Technical Assistance Activity to Build Capacity Among Community Sound Broadcasting Stations in the Limpopo Province of South Africa” The National Community Radio Forum (NCRF) has secured the partnership of the World Bank Institute Voice and Media Technical Assistance Activity unit. The following information seeks to inform stations in the Limpopo province of the planned project to start on 5 May 2008 and end on 16 June 2008. Partnership between the NCRF and WBI. There is a pressing need to strengthen the management and participatory nature of many of South Africa’s community radio stations. This Assistance Activity (AA) will launch a collaborative effort between NCRF and WBI to strategically develop the capacities of the community broadcasting sector in South Africa. NCRF has proposed, and WBI agrees, that a phased approach, which starts with a particular province, would be more appropriate than attempting to develop the capacities of South Africa’s entire community broadcasting sector, which would be too large a task to undertake at once. Accordingly, this program to strengthen community radio stations’ capacities and operations will be undertaken in a phased manner, starting with one province. Limpopo was chosen as the pilot site for its specific demographics and poverty profile.
