Pari ko Putali- Children-friendly Radio Series
The unstable and dreadful situation generated by the earthquake and its effects were highly observed amongst the children that had scarred them with psychological dismay and distress. Realising the effect and to portray the scenario, Sakriya Sath along with the support of CRS Nepal and co-ordination of ISRA-AID, the children-friendly radio series Pari ko Putali was developed. The radio series had been a listening interest amidst the children and parents of the earthquake-affected areas.

Radio Cartoon- Tales of Sabina and Punte, the Elephant
With the concept of producing cartoony feel via the radio, radio cartoon- ‘Tales of Sabina and Punte, the Elephant’ was developed and aired. The programme was based on the writings and characters developed by Dr Christine Tipper. By logging into the recorded programme could be listened at Sakriyasath.org.np . The radio cartoon programme, sponsored by Christine’s World of Words, could also be listened via the radio mobile application, HamroPatro.
Sabina ra Punte Hatti (Sabina and Punte Elephant) is a radio series broadcast in Nepali through local stations in Nepal. It is aimed to fill a gap in the provision of children orientated programmes in Nepal. The stories are based on my children’s books and adapted for radio. Our aim is to give Nepali children their own programme which deals with the issues young people face today in a changing society. Through stories children learn to use their initiative, deal with problems, have adventures and learn life skills.
Words from the author
I have a variety of interests. I love languages and translating. I adore making mosaics. I’m thrilled to create children’s stories and the accompanying illustrations. I’m proud of being able to help so many Nepalese children through my work with Glory School, my books and the Sabina ra Punte Hatti radio programme. I feel very strongly that education in all its holistic forms should be available for children throughout the world. I have chosen to focus on the children of Nepal.

Public Service Announcements (PSA)
Incorporating the concerns of the concerned public regarding menstruation and untouchability; sex and sexuality; education as common rights; adolescent-friendly home and family; sexual and reproductive health; drug and alcohol addiction, Sakriya Sath has been developing and assisting in the development of such issues-related information in the interest of the public and communities in different languages – Nepali, Tamang, Tharu, Maithili, Jumla and Doti regional languages among others – and disseminating the information to the public via different community radio frequencies. These information materials are preferred sources and popular amongst the listeners.
PSAs are being broadcast every day via seven Radio FM stations all over Nepal in six major local languages. Since Nepal is a multi-language country, in some places people speak only their mother tongue rather than Nepali. In order to reach those listeners as well, Sakriya Sath developed the PSAs in their six local language and broadcast the contents in their communities. Local people have been historically engaged and excited to listen to National PSAs in their daily life languages. SRHR and parenting care-related messages and contents are simply grabbed by local people through these PSAs, and this has been an effective behavior change communication tool.
