About the organization
The Campestre FM Community Radio Association was founded in June 1998 due to problems with communication caused by the difficult access to this location. There was only satellite TV signal and Pernambuco radio, in medium wave. There are no printed newspapers in the city. This difficult scenario has generated the need to create, enhance and disseminate communication in the city. Thus, activities were strengthened and Campestre FM Community Radio started to work more effectively with training activities in the community. This was initiated through a partnership with CEMINA organization, from Rio de Janeiro, followed by the creation of the Telecentre, which enabled other partnerships and the development of other projects, such as Estação Digital Campestre, Replicating Knowledge, Ponto de Cultura, and Guardians of Jacuípe Valley.
