We are glad to announce to the general public that the government of Tanzania has granted KADETFU a construction permit for the long awaited "Kagera Community Radio (KCR FM 93.3MHz)", which is being established at Bukoba Town, Kagera Region in Tanzania.
The idea of the establishment of this Radio Station aims at addressing a felt need in the Community, that is changing the behavior and attitude of the youth and young adults as well as to create awareness on basic societal burning issues such as gender, environmental protection, human and other socio-economic rights, HIV/AIDS, poverty reduction/eradication and the general welfare of the rural poor communities.
The project will therefore serve the purpose of providing a forum for Kagera Region communities. It will provide information, education, news and early warning to the communities within Kagera Region and contribute to promoting the National economy through education programs on economic undertakings as well as contributing to community development.
KADETFU is therefore appealing to local and International radios, the Donor community, Radio Networks, all Development Partners and well-wishers for collaboration, networking and working partnership to grow local audience, through broadcasting on the local people's own development and exchanging programs. KADETFU will be grateful to collaborate with other Global Development Practitioners to make KCR vision a reality.
THE VISION OF KADETFU:
WE ENVISAGE: An environmental friendly, healthy, prosperous, and just society; committed to solution of its problems independently.
KADETFU’s Mission Statement:
To protect human rights, conservation of the environment, facilitate promotion of social, economic, cultural development and thus empower the society to organize and fight for their needs through utilizing locally available resources.
As one day pass by, it contributes to a week that contributes to a month and ultimately a year passé by. This is termed as growth. KADETFU is growing at a normal growth rate as well. It is 17 years old now; but more nurturing is needed to reach its maturity.
The recognition of our efforts by other development partners is a sign of growth. E.g. in addition to the past awards which KADETFU won by for the past three consecutive years, this year SNV, a development organization from Netherlands, presented a third prize Award in LCB Marketing during the Knowledge Brokering Networking and Marketing forum 2010.
