Baraka FM Radio and Studio

BARAKA FM is a radio station which belongs to South West Province of the Moravian Church in Tanzania. Its broadcasting studios are located at Forest area along Mahakama Street and its transmission sites at Kasule Hills in Mbeya City.

Officially, the station switched on in 2008. Our foundation is broadcasting spiritual support, but we also deliver news and other expressive information to the general public.  Baraka FM believes that enlightened citizens are essential and relevant to all national building activities.

At the time of its registration at the Tanzania Communications Regulatory Authority (TCRA) in 2008, the radio station employed five people and covered an area of around 42 km in radius, which comprised around 60% of the population of Mbeya region back then. With a lot of effort, as well as contributions made by the government and other stake holders, coverage has increased from 42 km to 200 km radius, which allows us to serve a much larger audience and employ a total of 16 people.
