The World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters (AMARC), through its Global fund for community radio, and with the support of Bread for the World, called on its members to participate in an awareness campaign on the theme of social protection and agriculture in order to initiate discussions in the communities and share information to help "break the cycle of poverty." On this occasion, the members of AMARC's network are invited to assert their role as agent of social change and to highlight the importance of communication as a tool for development.
