nutriskwela community radio network

The Nutriskwela Community Radio Network Program of the National Nutrition Council was born of a need for a long-term and cost-efficient strategy to address the problem of hunger and malnutrition in the Philippines through the use of radio, the most available form of mass media.

The Nutriskwela Community Radio Network Program involves the setting up of non-profit, non-partisan community radio stations and the training of broadcast personnel in areas of the country with high malnutrition prevalence and which do not have easy access to broadcast media.

Nutriskwela Community Radio aims to empower the community through the dissemination of correct, relevant and up-to-date nutrition and health information, as well as educational and developmental information from all relevant sectors of the community, government agencies, and non-government organizations.

The first phase of the project was implemented in 2008 with consultancy provided by Tambuli Foundation Inc. with Mr. Lucio N. Tabing (Ka Louie), a foremost advocate of community radio in the country.
