Zimbabwe Association of Community Radios (ZACRAS)

The Zimbabwe Association of Community Radio Stations (ZACRAS) is an umbrella body of community radio stations in Zimbabwe whose two broad aims are capacity strengthening and advocating for the licensing and a conducive operational environment. ZACRAS seeks to capacitate and strengthen member stations through conceptual and technical training.

As we commemorate the 2015 World Press Freedom Day, ZACRAS recognizes the important role of a free media in promoting development and democracy the world over.

Radio is not only a conduit for delivering news and entertainment, but is also a powerful tool for critical reflections and debates in response to disasters and emergencies which affect development of communities at every level. Despite widespread advances in technology, radio still responds to the socio-economic needs of our time and also encourages debate on the geopolitics of the 21st Century particularly climate change and its disastrous impact on Zimbabwe and the rest of the world.

Women are a strong pillar for development and ensuring their inclusion is a pre requisite for any development initiative. In the same token the recognition, participation, involvement and development of women should be the objective of any development agenda. When women have platforms to share ideas and information, they stand a better chance to contribute to the betterment of our societies.
