The Annual report provides an update on Farm Radio International activities and support over the past year, documenting how the exchange of information and skills have helped our partners promote discussion and positive change in their communities.
Annual Report 2011-2012
Our work in 2011-12 demonstrated the re-emerging power of radio as a highly effective way to help African farmers. We developed innovative ways of providing resources like radio scripts to African radio stations, increased broadcasters’ skills through training and coaching, developed and produced high-impact radio programs with partner stations, and integrated new – and affordable – technology into the production process.
Annual Report 2010-2011
Over the last year, we have made some exciting changes to our services. Our core mission remains the same, but we are working in a variety of new ways to achieve it. We have enhanced our script service to a more comprehensive Resources for Broadcasters strategy. This includes our electronic news service, Farm Radio Weekly, and the development of an online social network. As before, our Resources for Broadcasters are available, free of charge, for any and all radio practitioners to use. We have also added the new core strategies of Impact Programming and Training and Standards.
