Radio remains the most accessible information and communication medium in sub-Saharan Africa. Combined with mobile phones, it’s more powerful than ever before. Learn how working with one of the world’s leading radio for development organizations can help you engage rural citizens to enable learning and effect change.
We always work through existing local radio stations. Our network currently includes more than 1,300 radio partners across 38 sub-Saharan African countries. Building the capacity of these stations and their local stakeholders is central to our approach to ensuring viable communication platforms for long-term sustainable development.
We have offices and staff in Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Ethiopia, Ghana, Mali, Nigeria, Tanzania, and Uganda and work closely with strategic and implementing partners in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique and Zambia. And we have worked with funders and partners such as AGRA, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, GIZ, Global Affairs Canada, FAO, the IKEA Foundation, the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), LuxDev, the Rockefeller Foundation and the World Food Programme.
Together with our broadcasting and project partners, we reach tens of millions of small-scale farmers with life-changing information and enable them to have a stronger voice in their own development.
