Swaziland is one of the most media oppressive countries in Southern Africa, and the only country with no licensing system for community radio broadcasting. This project created and supported a community radio countrywide network, which was enabled to develop its own advocacy plan to lobby for the issuing of broadcast licenses. It carried out public and institutional advocacy at the community, regional and national levels. It also increased equitable access to and use of information and communication technologies. The project created awareness of the need to build and maintain a national community radio network, ensuring as a crosscutting issue sustained inclusion of women at all levels of management and production of the community radio stations.
