“Baati Rewmi” (VOICE OF THE NATION)
Save the Gambia Democracy project, a US based civic and democratic movement committed to bring about democracy, good governance and the rule of law in the Gambia brings a new independent radio broadcast to the citizens of the Gambia. STGDP believes that a responsible independent media will create an environment in the Gambia within which democracy and all its instruments can be nurtured and STGDP strongly believes that the Diaspora has become an important partner in our quest for the enhanced for a developed Gambia. development of our country, and with that comes the need for the building of a nexus between Gambians in the Diaspora and Gambians at home. This nexus is needed to facilitate dialogue with the government of the day, civic organizations, opposition parties and the entire citizens of the country.
To begin the process of constructive dialogue, STGDP wishes to introduce a direct weekly radio broadcasting program in all local languages to the Gambia. This radio broadcast is not an anti/pro – government radio, or a pro/anti opposition radio but rather a pro - democracy radio, with a belief that this will help bring about the building of the institutions of democracy which ultimately will lead to political stability, economic development and prosperity to the shores of the Gambia . We will be looking forward to working with responsible, independent media in the Diaspora and at home and together we will have a positive impact to our motherland.
