“The bond I have with my farmers is not an ordinary one” – Grace Amito

On November 5, 2010 Farm Radio International was proud to announce the 2010 George Atkins Communications Award winner was Grace Amito, a broadcaster from Mega FM in Gulu, Uganda. This award recognizes rural radio broadcasters for their outstanding contribution to food security and poverty reduction in low-income countries.

Unfortunately Grace was unable to join us in Ottawa, Canada to receive the award in person, but she sent us this great thank you message. It was played for the over 500 guests that attended the joint Farm Radio International-WUSC Opening Night Reception and Award Ceremony at the 2010 Annual Assembly.  The loud applause from the audience said it all…


Congratulations once again Grace, we hope to see you in Canada later in the new year.  Keep up the great work!
