(March 24, 2023) - The Ministry of Education's Radio Station, EDYOU FM, just made history by becoming the first local station in Guyana to broadcast in Kamarang and other parts of the upper Mazaruni, Region 7.


The station commenced its inaugural operations on Thursday, March 23, 2023, as EDYOU FM continues to intensify its efforts in bringing distance education through radio to the most remote parts of Guyana.

The signal is expected to reach riverine communities along the Mazaruni River such as Paruima, Waramadong, Kako, Jawalla, Phillipai, Imbaimadai among others benefitting thousands of students and residents alike.

Through a collaboration with the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), EDYOU FM is scheduled to visit Kamarang and surrounding areas to begin distributing radios to schools.
