In March 2014, Trac FM started working with Free Press Unlimited in Somalia. Free Press Unlimited works to ensure that reliable news and information are and remain available to people across the globe. Particularly people in countries where there is little to no press freedom.
We launched in march 2014 with one program - Radio Hirad that broadcasts in many parts of Somalia. Topics such as migration, family planning and malaria have already been discussed on Radio Hirad, with input from around 300-900 listeners per show.
Since September 2014, 5 local radio stations around Somalia started using the Trac FM technology. Trough the Trac FM system Somali people from all regions of the country can now participate in important social debates.
Roll-out to 11 stations is planned for this year.
