About: 

A community radio station named "Radio Vishwas" is giving audio classes to students in Nashik district amidst the Covid-19 pandemic. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and consequent restrictions, the education sector has been adversely affected. Dr. Hari Vinayak Kulkarni, the Station Head of the Radio Vishwas 90.8 FM said, "Earlier, bringing smartphones or looking at them inside the school premises was considered wrong for children. But now, their education takes place through smartphones. But many kids from Marathi schools and Zila Parishad schools did not have any access to smartphones and apps for their education. So through Radio Vishwas, around 200 teachers recorded their lectures on a variety of subjects and they were broadcasted via radio.”This benefited children from far-off and tribal areas. Over 50,000 students gained benefit from it.
