CFFN Radio is a project designed to share thoughts and knowledge with anyone and anyone who seeks it. Through this Web site, anyone can listen at any time to a variety of radio shows produced by Canada Foundation for Nepal. Everyone is free to invite others to listen and to download and redistribute the shows. It is our hope that one day the programs available here will be broadcast on airwaves in rural areas of Nepal so that all that is needed to listen is a radio. Here are the programs that we currently produce:
- Yuba Sanchar: Yuba Sanchar is a youth radio program dedicated to advancing knowledge and wisdom for building a better world. Through this project inspired youth of Canada and Nepal work together to build collective knowledge and understanding.
- Epilogues / Yatra Nepal: This radio program invites recent visitors to Nepal to share their stories and experiences. Nepalis and non-Nepalis alike are invited to be part of our storytelling. This program is available in both English and Nepali languages so that everyone can get a taste of Nepal, or home.
- CFFN Interview Series: Here, CFFN hosts interviews with various people and personalities to gain insights relevant for the organization and to those interested in its causes.
- CFFN Specials: CFFN Specials brings you presentations, speeches, and more directly from events hosted by or attended by CFFN.
What is a Podcast?
A Podcast is a type of information broadcast that is available on demand and can be download from the Internet. Here at CFFN Radio, all of our shows are available as podcasts. They are all audio and in MP3 format.
