Dear friends and supporters,
We at COMPPA would like to wish you a happy holiday season and a wonderful New Year. We’ve come to the close of another year full of excitement, challenges, and big steps forward in the fight for communication rights. With your help, this year we’ve taught dozens of community media makers, programmed the first open-source website for community radios, facilitated gatherings of women in community media, and created two new books to support grassroots media.
Thanks to small donations from people like you, we’ve worked for over ten years hand in hand with popular community media. Your support has allowed us to continue our work independently of large funders, so that every donation– no matter how small– has a large impact on community radios. We’d like to invite you to continue working with us by making a donation today.

Your donation supports over 15 community radio stations that give voice to community organizations involved in the struggle for human rights in Guatemala y Honduras, each one with its own story. Some transmit the voices of indigenous organizations resisting environmental destruction. Others are getting ready to launch the first radio run by women human rights defenders in Honduras. And although each radio faces threats from those who wish to silence them, together, and with your support, they can keep sharing their stories with the world.
At COMPPA we offer ongoing support to keep these radios on the air. Like organizing training and technical support for several of the radios in the Mesoamerican Network of Indigenous and Garífuna Community Radios, hosting sessions to strengthen women’s participation in the Network, and publishing two books to celebrate and support them: The Sound of Women of the Land and The Sea and Voices Taking Flight. We invite you to learn more by exploring our website and the newest online platform we’ve programmed for the Mesoamerican Network.
We wish you all the best in 2014, and invite you to keep in touch and continue collaborating in the struggle for communication rights with COMPPA!
