In the Spring 2016 edition of Tuning In, we celebrate the life of Janet Atkins, devoted wife of FRI’s founder, George Atkins, with a tribute written by her eldest granddaughter. Janet played a key role in building Farm Radio International from the ground up, supporting her husband every step of the way. She passed away peacefully last month, just a few weeks shy of her 100th birthday.
This issue of Tuning In also shares the critical work that we have been doing in Ethiopia to help farmers cope with the worst drought in decades, an update on our work serving guinea fowl farmers in Ghana, highlights from our latest farmer program e-course, our appreciation for a very special supporter, and more.
