Our work in
Kenya has a highly liberalized, dynamic and multilingual media environment, with more than a hundred radio stations broadcasting in a range of languages. We began working there in 2014 in and around the Dadaab and Kakuma refugee camps on radio programs promoting girl-child education, in partnership with WUSC. We also ran a highly successful research-for-development project supported by IDRC on the cultivation and sale of common beans, setting the foundation for our work with private companies that source product from small-scale farmers. Currently, we are working with the Rockefeller Foundation and Technoserve on an innovative behaviour-change project focused on post-harvest loss in the mango value chain. With our new office within the Kenya Community Media Network (KCOMNET) headquarters in Nairobi, we now have a solid homebase for our future work in Kenya.
24 million potential listeners
By combining radio coverage maps with population density information, we estimate that our partner stations in Kenya have a combined potential audience of more than 24 million people.
