COMPPA (Mexico) achieved the immediate aim of the project: the creation of an online digital platform to facilitate the exchange of information and productions between organizations that constitute the Mesoamerican Network of Garifuna and Indigenous Community Radio Stations. A second aim was to diversify and increase the difusion of radio productions to local audiences and further afield. In addition the platform serves not just as an archive of the group's historical memory administered by the radio stations themselves, but also as a new digital mechanism to coordinate the network's programme coverage, training and output. The project's results were: the creation of the first interactive web page designed in open code and taking into account the needs of the network's members; at least two communicators from 16 radio stations trained in using the page; every community radio station publishes its productions via the page; the creation of a radio archive; and the installation and use of local servers to record and locate live transmissions from the radio stations. Before the project took place, most community radio stations had little Internet presence. Now, and thanks to the new platform, they have a site focused on their needs that is being used regularly and professionally. The page is located at: www.radioscomunitarias.info
