Ethiopia is home to some of our most popular radio programs. Given the country’s large population (the second largest in Africa) and strong public service broadcasting system, the programs we have supported there have reached tens of millions of people. Our projects in Ethiopia have focused on diverse topics, from the production of teff and to the consumption of high-protein maize, often utilizing Community Listening Groups to drive interaction between listeners and broadcasters. Our close relationship with Ethiopia’s Ministry of Communication and Information Technology enabled us to work together to help farmers affected by the 2016-17 drought — the worst one in fifty years.

Our reach


32 million potential listeners

By combining radio coverage maps with population density information, we estimate that our partner stations in Ethiopia have a combined potential audience of more than 32 million people.
