FARMER-RADIO

This innovative programme uses a multi-pronged approach. Through the medium of African Broadcast radio and SMS (text messaging) we reach and engage smallholder farmers with the information that they desperately need in order to manage and sell their crops effectively.  The farmers ‘set the questions’ for our radio programmes and the LYF and our local radio partners, provide them with access to answers from experts in the field. We work in partnership with African educational institutions, NGOs, farmer cooperatives and industry, matching them together as peers learning from each other. From our first Farmer-Radio project in Kenya, we have gone on to support smallholders with Farmer-Radio projects in Tanzania and DRC; we are now working in Ghana and Burkina Faso.
