Reaching Listeners on Shortwave & Internet
FM License Secured
Broadcasting Messages Online In 2 Major Cities

Our office in Kazakhstan was officially incorporated in June 2005 with the hope of establishing local FM stations in 2 major cities: Almaty and Astana. While we have made progress in securing required licenses for the FM stations, we are still waiting for the government to issue us specific FM frequencies. Until then, we are reaching listeners by shortwave and Internet broadcasts. The majority of people living in Kazakhstan are culturally Muslim.
