Farm Radio Weekly

Now available online: Script package on Participatory Radio Campaigns and agricultural co-operatives

Package 94 is now available on our website at http://www.farmradio.org/english/radio-scripts/. The package offers  15 brand new scripts and two issue packs. It has two themes – first, the Participatory Radio Campaigns developed through Farm Radio International’s African Farm Radio Research Initiative (AFRRI), and second, agricultural co-operatives.

In the accompanying magazine, Voices, the feature article focuses on the two themes and summarizes the different items (scripts and issue packs) in the package. There is also a profile of Radio Ada, a community radio station in Ghana that was involved in AFRRI. In addition, we welcome a record number of new broadcasting partners.

We are happy to recognize the achievements of Fatogoma Sanogo of Radio Fanaka in Mali, who is the winner of this year’s George Atkins Communications Award. He receives the award as a result of his innovative market information program.

We are pleased to announce the launch of Barza (www.barzaradio.com), the online community for African radio broadcasters. Over 100 people from 18 countries have signed up so far! Information on how you can participate in this vibrant community is in Voices. Please join us on Barza. In addition to helping you connect with your peers across Africa, Barza will soon be the best place to go for a wide range of radio scripts, tools, and tips for creating better farm radio programs.

As always, we hope that you use all the materials in this package to create interesting, informative, participatory and entertaining radio programs. Please share your feedback with us – we love hearing from you.
