Radio for rural development

farmer-interview

We are the only international non-profit organization focused on using radio to help African farming communities help themselves.

Our story

It all got started on a bumpy bus ride in Zambia back in 1975. It was then that a Canadian broadcaster named George Atkins got a simple but powerful idea that would go on to improve the lives of millions of the world’s most vulnerable farmers.
