Launch of Uks’s Internet Radio titled “Meri Awaz Suno’
Uks Research Center, Islamabad, in collaboration with Zong Telecom, has launched its very own internet radio titled ‘Meri Awaz Sunno: Giving Voice to Pakistani Women’.
The launch ceremony of this unique initiative was organized at the Uks Office in F-8/4 Islamabad on Wednesday from 5 to 7 pm.
Women comprise almost half of Pakistan’s population as well as form the single largest consumer group in the country. One comes across several products and services targeting women, however there is no representative mass media vehicle that addresses the issues and problems of this large and important segment.
Uks’s Internet Radio programme, Meri Awaz Sunno is being launched with the single objective of highlighting women issues and providing them with guidance and support.
Programmes will be in English, Urdu and some of the regional languages. Participation will be encouraged to produce constructive debates and solutions via shared experiences. The Internet Radio has been established in Uks’s Islamabad office.
This Internet Radio project has been made possible with the support of Zong, Pak-China Mobile.
Meri Awaz suno is likely to become the mouthpiece for women, bridging the void that has existed for several decades.
The radio can be heard from 12.30 to 1 PM, every day from Monday to Friday, and is accessible on Uks’s website at www.uksresearch.com Uks is a research, resource and publication centre dedicated to the cause of gender equality and women's development.
