Baliti FM is a community radio station located in Isiolo town, about 285 Kilometres north of Nairobi city. Baliti FM broadcasts to a radius of 130 Kilometres in Isiolo County.
The community radio broadcasts on 102.7 from Isiolo town.
It was established by the Foundation for Women Pastoralists (FOWOPA) in collaboration with the local community in 2012.
Baliti is an Oromo word meaning “Umoja” in Swahili, and can translate to ours/together/togetherness. Baliti FM went on air on July 17th 2013.
The community radio station is built on the concept of “Community Driven Development (CDD)”, a concept that places people central to development from the onset to implementation.
Based on this concept of CDD, Baliti FM will be independent, non-commercial, not-for-profit, and volunteer-based radio station covering the Upper Easter region, an area that has faced the worst historical injustices in Kenya since independence. These are issues that are dire to humankind and at the heart of Baliti FM.
