Our work in
More than 40 indigenous languages are used in Uganda, with dialects varying from community to community. This has made for a very diverse and competitive radio landscape. We are best known in Uganda for our work promoting vitamin A-rich orange-fleshed sweet potato through a highly popular radio drama called My Children — the latest season of which was broadcast in seven languages. Some of our more interesting projects include linking farmers to markets, or even promoting the use of insects as feeds for livestock. We have also worked to maintain Uganda’s natural beauty via forest landscape restoration projects and are helping hundreds of thousands of farmers deal with challenges like the Fall armyworm, banana bacterial wilt and cassava viruses.
45 million potential listeners
By combining radio coverage maps with population density information, we estimate that our partner stations in Uganda have a combined potential audience of more than 45 million people.
