  Your Story, Our Voice  

REF-FM Kyangwali 102.6 is brand new, with big ambitions!  We aim to have a dozen of aspiring crew members, thousands of followers on social media, and tens of thousands of listeners, within a few months after our start. We bring positive information that is about society, life and opportunities. We are family & we are here to stay … And to grow rapidly!


The current Kyanwali Refugee Settlement was opened in the 1960' as a refugee camp for mainly refugees from Rwanda. Lateron followed by refugees from mainly Congo and (South) Sudan, and some other nationalities. The population of the settlement has now reached over 125,000.  Our radio station aims to serve these refugees and their host communities.


We are the only radio station for miles around focussing only and exclusively on refugees and host communities. With a potential listenership of more than 125,000, we offer unique opportunities to reach out to the vast and so far untapped reservoir of people in Kyangwali and beyond who strive for a more peaceful and better life.

REF-FM Kyangwali 102.6 was initiated by the Dutch based REF FM FOUNDATION and the international NGO Action Africa Help International (AAH). The station is regulated by Uganda Communication Commission (UCC) and is supervised by the Kyangwali based local NGO HAF-Uganda.
