Our work in

Mozambique

With the majority of Mozambique’s population living in rural areas, agriculture is the mainstay of the country’s economy. Unfortunately, rural citizens typically lack access to infrastructure, markets, and public services — with the exception of radio, that is. Although there is only one official language (Portuguese), Mozambique is a highly multilingual country, with many radio stations — including a growing number of community-based ones — broadcasting in a range of languages and dialects. We began working in Mozambique in 2015 on a project with NCBA CLUSA (funded by the USAID Feed The Future program) focused on delivering agricultural e-extension support through a range of media, including radio.
