Our work in

Ghana

Ghana has a very dynamic public sphere, facilitated by a well-developed network of internet providers and more than 500 radio stations. We have worked with more radio stations in Ghana than any other country, operating in multiple languages across all of the country’s ten regions. In addition to our main office in Accra on the southern coast, we have a secondary office in Tamale, in the north, where there is more poverty, fewer public services, and greater wet and dry climate extremes. Across the country, we have led projects on a range of topics, including climate change, innovative e-extension methods and residential construction — some of which reach across borders into neighbouring countries. We have also conducted research here on the economic viability of agricultural radio programs. Our close relationship with the Ministry of Food and Agriculture has been critical to the success of many of these projects.

Our reach

Ghana

32 million potential listeners

By combining radio coverage maps with population density information, we estimate that our partner stations in Ghana have a combined potential audience of more than 32 million people — an audience that includes significant populations in Togo, Cote d'Ivoire and Burkina Faso.
