One of FRI’s methods of communicating its work is through audio postcards.
The concept is simple: a postcard-like photo shows a scene of farmers or radio broadcasters, or even an FRI broadcasting partner at work. The picture is accompanied by a soundtrack which explains the work going on, the conversation, the moment.
Our latest postcards include Teaching new technologies can be tough at times, but always rewarding, in which FRI’s Nathaniel Ofori describes some of the work he does with radio stations in Ghana. You can listen to it here: http://www.farmradio.org/ourblog/2014/07/07/audio-postcard-teaching-new-technologies-may-be-tough-at-times-but-always-rewarding/
In Tanzanian cassava co-operative triples harvest by listening to the radio, FRI’s Executive Director Kevin Perkins describes how a radio series produced by one of FRI’s partner radio stations, Pride FM, helped co-operative producer groups improve their cassava production and marketing.
