While at AgriTechTalk Africa, our team successfully applied for funding to USAID’s Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (BHA). We co-designed a project delivering farming advice in audio form.
In many rural areas, literacy rates are low. People need to travel long distances to towns and training locations. As a result, radio is an important means to get information across. We teamed up with Farm Radio International, an impressive Canadian NGO, and designed a project resulting in agricultural extension resources in audio form.
The podcasts were translated into Karomojong and all materials are freely available here. It takes a while but it is incredibly fulfilling to see a collaborative project come to fruition and contributing to the complex process of social and behavioural change.
