The five days' workshop begins on September 3, 2020, and brings together TADIO's secretariat staff and board members.

In Tanzania, UNESCO through funding from the Swiss Development Corporation (SDC) supports 25 community radios and the Network of Community Media in Tanzania, (TADIO) an entity with 35 members comprising of 34 community radios and Pemba Press Club.

The coverage of Community radio stations under the network is 74 percent of the United Republic of Tanzania, with a total estimated population of 33 million people.
