CMSCRS INITIATIVES FOR THE COMMUNITIES
In order to facilitate the community to listen to the programmes prepared specially for them, radio sets were also distributed in the villages. This not only enabled them to hear there own voices on the radio but also instilled in them confidence and strengthened their relationship with the Community radio.
An array of programs, thus, stemmed in from their requirements. In addition to the series of programmes prepared on the health issues of the community members, a HEALTH CAMP was also organized by the CMS CRS team in the Malhaur village.  
  In order to bring out community talents, a MEHENDI COMPETITION was organized in the community area of CMS CRS. Girls and women in large number participated in the event and this facilitated in instilling confidence among them. Dr Jagdish Gandhi, Founder Manager of CMS went to the community and encouraged them.
A CREATIVE WRITING CONTEST was also organized for the free expression of the kids in a community school. Active participation of the children in the contest made the event a great success. CMS CRS organized a Samudaik Sangoshthi in Makdoompur.
Organized the Regional Consultaion for Community Radios in November 2007.
The station in its regular practice organizes various workshops and events for community welfare..
The range of programmes varied from those on agriculture and employment to ones on health and education. Community radio provided the oblivious villagers to seek direct answers from the experts of respective fields. What used to be Herculean task earlier now became simplified. Now the CMS community radio has offered an easy solution to the villagers.  
It is not possible to give a detailed description of all the programmes undertaken by CMS Community Radio. Therefore, we will just give you a brief purview of our programmes catering to needs and problems faced by the community members
It is said, “Children are like cement. Whatever falls on them makes an impression.” Keeping this in view, CMS CRS celebrated Children’ Day amongst the community kids. A puppet show was organized in the Sapera Basti which aimed at highlighting the significance of 14th Nov among the kids. A talent show for kids was also a part of the event wherein the children of the community participated with a lot of zeal and enthusiasm.
Thus community radio is beginning to gain ground and achieving the very purpose with which it was launched. What is most significant is that the community has extended a positive response towards it. Earlier, radio had a one-way system of communication; wherein one side comprised a speaker while the other had listeners. However, this no longer holds true for community radio wherein the listener too has become a speaker.
