Who funds ARKTL?

ARKTL members are required under the constitution to pay a nominal annual membership fee. For now, the community radio sector in Timor Leste is significantly under-resourced so ARKTL currently collects no membership fees from member stations. As the sector strengthens and develops models of community support for community radio it is expected that ARKTL will begin to collect some nominal membership fees. ARKTL receives no regular annual funding from other sources. ARKTL is funded on a project-by-project basis. ARKTL aims to secure regular annual funding to sustain itself as an organisation.

ARKTL’s current project ‘The Community Engagement Project’ is funded by the Asia Pacific Journalism Centre (APJC) and The Australian Embassy through the Direct Aid Program (DAP). ARKTL will publish its annual budget at the end of the 2013 financial year and will announce any new project funds via our Enews
