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.

Our reach


400,000+ potential listeners

By combining radio coverage maps with population density information, we estimate that our partner stations in Mozambique have a combined potential audience of more than 400,000 people.
