|Mission Statement :
||FREEPLAY FOUNDATION'S MISSION The Freeplay Foundation is unlike any other non-profit humanitarian organisation in the world. Its sole mission is to enable sustained delivery of radio information and education to the most vulnerable populations via self-powered radios. Working mostly in Africa, where affordable energy is scarce or non-existent, the Freeplay Foundation collaborates with professionals in education, health, agriculture, peacemaking, and voter education - all sectors where radio can play a vital or even life-saving role. RADIO: THE WORLD'S LIFELINE Much of the developed world drowns in data from the Information Superhighway. Yet in developing countries, most have never made a phone call and few have ever switched on a computer. Radio remains the world's lifeline. The greatest barrier to the alleviation of poverty is isolation. Access to radio can reach anyone isolated by geography, language, conflict, illiteracy or poverty. Millions of dollars are spent annually to create developmental radio programming, yet the target audience, the poor, may never hear it. The reason is power - most people do not have electricity or cannot afford the on-going cost of batteries.
