Yuba Sansar, weekly Nepali language radio programme run by young Bhutanese in Adelaide, Australia, was awarded the ‘Multicultural Youth Program of the Year 2012’ on 24 November 2012.
This is the highest national award conferred in Australia on multicultural broadcasters. National Ethnic and Multicultural Broadcasters’ Council (NEMBC) gives the award in five categories every year.
Yuba Sansar was awarded for its clarity, focus and appeal to the Bhutanese youth community, and showing creativity in presenting their topics combined with their natural and comfortable rapport and confident broadcasting skills.
Yuba Sansar is dedicated to engaging with the Bhutanese youth community on everyday issues. It consists of diverse content such as Nepali music, Bhutanese youth news, tips on how young people can watch out for fraudulent emails and phone calls and inspirational stories.
