Today is #WorldRadioDay! Did you know that radio can act as a powerful tool to inform listeners about their rights? In Nicaragua, over 63 communities are benefiting from this reach. "Women affected by war, with difficult living conditions and in hard to reach areas, can now tell their own stories, through radio," says Mildred Garcia, UN Trust Fund Portfolio Manager for the project. "Through the radio programmes, women are now informed about their rights and how to access justice." http://unwo.men/MWjL308VJub
