MUMBAI: Radio Ariana, a division of Ariana Television Network (ATN), Afghanistan's largest privately owned television and radio network, announced its partnership with Radio Everyone , an alliance of the world's leading radio networks, formed to broadcast information about The United Nations Global Goals For Sustainable Development.

Debuting today (26 September, 2015), at The Global Citizen Festival in New York City, Radio Everyone will broadcast live performances by Beyonce, Coldplay, Pearl Jam and Ed Sheeran, together with critical information about the Global Goals initiatives to end extreme poverty, fight inequality, promote justice and remedy climate change. Radio Everyone's program of information and entertainment has been developed to build awareness, inspire action and effect positive change and will reach a global audience of approximately seven-billion listeners. Broadcasts will begin from 25 September, 2015.

"ATN is proud to partner with Radio Everyone, and to continue our mission of providing content and information that empowers Afghans to build a better tomorrow," said ATN managing director Azizullah Arral.

"Addressing the most pressing global goals-ending poverty, hunger and promoting good health, education and equality-is critical to Afghanistan's progress," said chairman of The Bayat Group and co-founder of The Bayat Foundation Ehsan Bayat. "The Bayat Foundation's programs which promote education, healthcare, economic and social development here in Afghanistan, are real-world examples of the work-and achievements-that the UN hopes to inspire around the globe."
