Radio Kratie on the air

A new radio station aimed at empowering women, particularly those from ethnic minorities, was launched yesterday in Kratie province.

Funded by NGOs and the Spanish government and established by the Women’s Media Centre of Cambodia, Radio Kratie 100 FM will broadcast from 8am to 8pm, promoting education, maternal health, social and development issues.

Program supervisor Hin Kunthea said studies had shown residents were not receiving adequate information on a range of issues, something the station hopes to remedy.
