Low Costs


Our networks are inexpensive to build and maintain, especially in comparison to radio, because we use only small consumer electronics and solar rechargers for production and distribution of our programs, and our staff and operational costs are commensurate with local price and wage rates.


In Sierra Leone, we pay our journalists competitive local salaries and our operations costs are mainly for transportation and cell phone top-up cards for our journalists.  In addition to journalists, we employ a Sierra Leonean Project Coordinator based in Freetown and pay small stipends to our listener-distributors. 


All donor funds go directly to activities on the ground in Sierra Leone, and these activities are supported by a large team of MMW volunteers living in Europe and the U.S.  


Growth


Bluetooth allows our programs to be easily transferred into ever-widening circles of listeners, and we anticipate our broadcast reach will eventually develop beyond borders. We foresee our operations being funded in the future through a mix of strategic partnerships for advertising, sponsorships, income opportunities for journalists, and continued grant support. 


With a trusted nationwide communication network in place, and a growing population of consumers loyal to our network, MMW will be able to offer a valuable opportunity to businesses, government, donors, humanitarian agencies, and international donors who see long-term valuation in what we are creating.  We anticipate MMW to quickly grow into a major brand for female consumers in a steadily growing African economies.
