Tune in and turn up the volume!

The Media Unit of the Centre for Policy Alternatives (CPA), Colombo, Sri Lanka is pleased to announce the launch of the first tri-lingual civil society internet radio station in Sri Lanka – Voices of Reconciliation Internet Radio – streaming directly to your computer.

VOR Radio is based on Public Service Broadcasting (PSB) values and aims to enhance social, political and cultural cohesion in Sri Lanka through productions that feature the ideas and opinions of citizens rarely featured in mainstream media.

Productions are in Sinhala, Tamil and English with a special focus on civil society initiatives and perspectives on peace, reconciliation and democracy.

There’s already over 100 hours worth of programming on the website and we strongly encourage local and international CSOs and NGOs to provide us with more content on Sri Lanka, which can be hosted on VOR Radio absolutely free of charge.

VOR Radio is part of the citizen media network, including the Groundviews citizen media website, set up by the Voices of Reconciliation Project, conducted by CPA in partnership with IMPACS, Canada and supported by CIDA and AusAID.
