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. From climate-smart agriculture and the development of radio based e-extension platforms, to scaling up the production and consumption of nutrient-rich crops, our team in Uganda works with local radio stations to produce and air ICT-enabled radio programs that encourage real, large-scale changes in knowledge, attitudes and practice. Whether it’s linking farmers to markets, inputs and weather information; promoting the use of insects as feed for livestock; teaching financial literacy or promoting forest restoration, programming in Uganda has helped hundreds of thousands of farmers deal with common challenges.

Our reach


47 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 47 million people.
