Women seek consistent access to reliable and relevant information as they work to become more resilient to the challenges faced by all small-scale farmers. They also want the opportunity to add their voices, questions and comments to the conversation around agriculture and food security.
Local radio programs, designed with women in mind, can provide women with the information they need to increase their harvest and income. Through training and support, we are providing women with the skills and confidence they need to tell their own story on the radio, their way. It’s radio for women, by women.
Twelve radio stations will also receive training to build their capacity around gender equality in farmer programming. They will be encouraged to air the comments, questions and stories of women, and to ensure women’s issues are discussed on air during regular programming.
This project is implemented with funding from the International Fund for Agricultural Development.
