This edition of Tuning In turns to the work Farm Radio is doing in rural communities across Africa as markets are shut and COVID-19 does its best to disrupt the best-laid plans. Meet Fatoumata Camara, a Senegalese farmer adjusting not only to COVID-19 disruptions, but also climate change. Learn how a Kenyan radio station is translating coronavirus-themed radio spots into a local language–and how their listenership has improved because of the good information they are sharing. Take a trip to the world pre-COVID and learn about how a “Best Husband” contest is changing the lives of women and girls in Burkina Faso, and finally find out how information can save lives.
