Moody Radio’s Global Partners Project has a new partner, international broadcaster HCJB Global.
Global Partners, launched on Oct. 4, is an effort to raise funds to provide radios to prospective listeners in Africa, and to fund a scholarship for a student from Africa.
The goal of the program is to raise $250,000 to buy and deliver 5,000 fixed-tuned radios for distribution by HCJB Global in Africa — as part of HCJB’s Turn the Radios On program — and to fund a four-year scholarship with the Moody Theological Seminary.
Much of the fundraising will be conducted on Moody stations over the next several weeks. The solar-powered radios were designed by HCJB.
According to the announcement, Moody graduates from Africa were responsible for the development of the cooperative initiative. Bruce Everhart, manager of marketing and development at Moody Radio, was quoted saying after a preparatory visit to Africa: “We were also able to witness how a Moody graduate is contributing to the well-being of these communities through radio.”
