The concept was born out of OneWorld
South Asia experience of initiating people radio, producing and
broadcasting radio programmes on socially relevant issues through the programme
EK Duniya EK Awaaz (EDEA), building competencies
of grassroots radio broadcasters across the region, and creating a library of
community oriented audio content on a range of issues related to the MDGs and
Edaa represents an
important milestone in OneWorld South Asia journey towards
creating enabling technology and platforms for poor rural communities to share
knowledge and content that would best enable their progress.
Edaa is intended as a
space that showcases high quality audio content created by communities and makes
available relevant knowledge in local languages.
