A strong sense of community
Remember? It was just over a year ago that we decided to make our financial crisis public. It was a painful coming out, which laid bare all the fragilities of our situation. Yet, it has been worth it! We received immeasurable support from our listeners. A support for our cause that was eventually acknowledged even by the Ministry of Media.
One year on, many things have changed – the ‘crisis’ we found ourselves in, and which was made worse by the covid pandemic, has receded. The donations received during the past year (about 40,000€) and the new agreement with the Ministry of Media, which gives us stability for the next five years, has fixed the budgets of the associations and allowed the radio to pay our journalists and activate educational and integration projects that had been put on standby.
Why donate to ARA?
Since its foundation, Radio ARA has been financed to a large extent by the contribution of its listeners, the agreement with the government is such that we must continue to show that we are a community financed project.. This is not only a method of funding, but above all an endorsement of a unique information project in Luxembourg, which guarantees genuine independence. Supporting one of our projects means contributing to the realisation of our objectives:
Implementation of cultural integration projects for cultural and linguistic minorities living in Luxembourg
Training and educating students, young apprentices and volunteers in good media practice
Improving and widening the offer proposed by the participative radio, composed of volunteers, freelances, journalists, associations and artists
