Radio Assenna depends on its audience for voluntary financial contributions.

On top of producing and disseminating original content about Eritrea, Assenna has succeeded in providing and maintaining a free and independent alternative forum for Eritreans. It also generates interactive user content and prides itself for being “Voice of the voiceless”. As its name suggests, Assenna aspires to become a ray of hope for the people of Eritrea.
