Saving lives through the power of radio

This is more than just Radio. In Rural Africa, it's a life line!
Why radio?

Radio is still the world's most popular mass medium, easily accessible to even the most remote African villages. It is accessible, convenient, inexpensive, and interactive.

Radio is powerful

Radio has the power to reach hundreds of millions of African farmers with life-changing information.

Listening to quality radio programs helps small-scale African farmers enjoy better harvests, improve their health and create a brighter future.

Radio gets results

According to studies, up to 40% of Farm Radio listeners make a positive change to their farming practices as a result of listening to one of our programs.

The radio shows and services that we support help tens of millions of farmers enjoy a better life through their own hard work and determination.

Farm Radio makes a difference because it provides long-term solutions to help people to help themselves

I trust Farm Radio International to spend my bequest where it’s needed the most.


Anish Parmar

I became a monthly donor to Farm Radio International because I wanted to contribute to something larger than myself and to an organization that would ensure my donations make a big impact.
