Hand-Made Radios Benefit Village

Hand-Made Radios Benefit Village
Joel Horowitz

Indonesian entrepreneur, Singgih Suslo Kartono has started manufacturing radios that use locally-sourced materials, skills and industries to improve economic conditions. Maybe compared to the New Deal program implemented by American President Roosevelt during the Great Depression in the 1930’s, the retro-designed, two-toned wooden radios are built in a village that previously had almost no means of employment.
