Small-scale farmers produce most of the food in Africa, but too often can’t make ends meet. Thankfully, there's a simple and accessible tool that can help them help themselves: RADIO.

The world's most popular mass medium is especially important in rural Africa, where people rely on it for information.

Available to practically everyone and broadcast in local languages, radio has the power to transform lives and whole communities for the better. And, combined with digital technologies, it is more powerful than ever before.
