In rural India, radio remains the most popular media directly reaching out to our target communities. From street vendors and shop owners to schools and families, radio is king, and so it is the perfect way to get key issues across.


How we help

Radio Nagar is the first community radio station in Ahmednagar, broadcasting in our local Marathi language 24/7. Through entertaining features on local and topical issues and popular Marathi and Hindi music, we reach and serve the people of Ahmednagar giving them a community focused forum.



Who we help


Broadcasts focus on and raise awareness of our work and wider social issues, allowing us to promote our helplines and services as well as debating issues affecting our listeners. Guest interviews, talk shows and phone-ins, events coverage and shows hosted around our campaigns raise our profile and showcase local talent. Youth-led programmes build greater social awareness within their own peer groups, building on our ​400,000 listeners within a 25km radius.



How you can help

Our studio is small but mighty, and in terms of equipment, well we're rocking it kind of old school at the moment. We're looking to upgrade our set-up, and get some protection for our cabling, so we can reach more people throughout Ahmednagar.
