Voice of the Voiceless – Nepal

Earlier this year, 3 Angels Community Radio (3ACR) launched the “Voice of Voiceless” program. It is aired once a week and it’s purpose is to share the stories of the unheard – those who have been victimized, specifically through domestic violence or gender discrimination.

The staff at 3ACR, a radio station underwritten by Captivating International, travel to little communities to spend time talking with the people. They record interviews and, with their permission, broadcast it to the ever-growing population of listeners in Nepal. Many ‘unheard voices’ have been aired. Here is one of those stories.

Mukta* is from a rural community in Western Nepal. She was selling packaged fast food and corn under the scorching sun beside the highway. She was wearing dirty clothes and holding a child in her lap. Permission was given to interview her.

Mukta wept during the interview as she remembered her husband and family. Her family avoided her, and her husband was always drunk. He shouted at her for not giving birth to a boy. She was almost trafficked by someone who pretended to help her. Fortunately, her elder brother found out about the situation and saved her. When Mukta’s interview was broadcast, it was heard by a government officer who works in the women’s empowerment sector. He called the radio station regarding Mutka. Mutka and her young daughter are now in a safe environment with a family who loves them.

3ACR Radio is continually looking for ways to reach people and be the voice of the voiceless. Our continued thanks to those who financially support this program.
