The AgriTechTalk Africa 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 the early stages, we benefited from the advice of Farm Radio International.
In many rural areas in Uganda, literacy rates are low. People need to travel long distances to towns and training locations along roads that during the rainy season are badly accessible. Radio is thus an important means to get information across. AgriTechTalk Africa and Farm Radio International collaborated to create a series of five podcasts on a tight budget. The resources – available both in English and Karamojong – are freely available from AgriTechTalk.
