Voices of Reconciliation Radio – January 2007 Update

Tune in and turn up the volume!

VOR Radio aims to enhance social, political and cultural cohesion in Sri Lanka through podcasts and radio productions that feature the ideas and opinions of citizens rarely featured in mainstream media. Content is in Sinhala, Tamil and English with a special focus on civil society initiatives and perspectives on peace, reconciliation and democracy.

There’s already over 120+ 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 associated with Groundviews, Sri Lanka’s first and only tri-lingual citizen journalism website, initiated under the Voices of Reconciliation project.
