Broadcasting from Butare twenty four hours a day, seven days a week, Radio Salus is the National University of Rwanda Radio Station supported by UNESCO.
The Radio derives its name from the Latin language “Salut” Meaning the salvation. The name we got after realizing that the editorial of our radio programs was to be an eye opener to the local population in as far as behavior change is concerned.
The station whose Mission is to train future Rwandan Broadcasters, enhance and diversify radio programming and enhance democracy building, has broken down it’s duties into two parallel purposes, which are:
To serve the Rwandan population with quality programming and offer training to students that exposes them to both broadcasting and educational skills.
Radio Salus reaches 100% of the Rwandan population as well as the neighboring countries with a variety of news, educational and entertainment programmes produced by a team of professional Journalist, in cooperation with lecturers and students from the School of Journalism and Communication of the National University of Rwanda.
As mentioned above, Radio Salus acts as a link between the University and the Community by offering to listeners a variety of programs in the areas such as health, family issues, environment, human rights, justice, rule of law and many others.
