About us

Mudzi Wathu Radio Station is a community radio station established in 2006 by a partnership between the American Institute for Research (AIR), Radio Systems In. (RSI), both based in the US, and the Creative Centre for Community Mobilisation (CRECCOM) of Malawi through seed funding from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). The seed funding ran from February 2006 to October 2006. Since then, CRECCOM has been solely funding the station.

The community radio station was licensed with the Malawi Regulatory Authority to serve communities in Mchinji Districts and surrounding areas. The license permits the station to run advertisements and various programmes provided there is objectivity and balancing when handling the news. The broadcasting frequency for the MWC is 102.6 MHz.

Mudziwathu radio station has proved to be a darling to its listenership in Mchinji part of Lilongwe, Kasungu, Dowa and parts of Zambia and Mozambique.

The station came about as part of the In My Village/“MmudziMwathu” Project which aimed at reaching over 90% of 550, 000 of the Mchinji District population with messages promoting abstinence and being faithful in the fight against HIV and AIDS, and mobilizing communities to support education for Orphans and other Vulnerable Children (OVCs), and promoting care for People With HIV and AIDS (PLWHAs). It established 42 listening clubs in various parts of Mchinji which serve as conduits for information dissemination and community mobilization to attain ripple effects. The listening clubs also served as hubs for community-based initiatives such as fund-raising activities and farming activities to raise food and funds to support OVCs and PLWHAs.
