Gurgaon Ki Awaaz was set up by an NGO, The Restoring Force, in 2009 triggered by its career counseling work in government schools in Gurgaon. The station focussed on the need to reach students across the city, and their parents, as well as provide a platform to give voices to the marginalised communities, especially local villagers and migrant workers.

Key focus areas are health (physical, sexual and reproductive, mental), education (formal, non-formal, skill-based), gender-based violence, sexual harassment of women, civic governance and citizen participation, water, waste-water and sanitation, employability training, women’s empowerment through voice access, and folk culture. Music, especially folk music, is a key focus while documenting and disseminating folk expression.
