Uganda Women Farmers Lack Access to Critical Information via Radio

Adam and VaniceKAMPALA, Uganda – I traveled across Uganda, last May, to conduct focus group discussions with smallholder farmers on the impact of the My Children radio drama, produced by Farm Radio International and Harvest Plus Uganda.

This radio drama taught farmers about the nutrition and benefits of growing and consuming orange-fleshed sweet potato. It became obvious during my visit to villages around the country that many Ugandan women farmers lack access to radio and the critical agriculture information it provides.

So, I decided to ask a few women smallholder farmers in western Uganda why this is the case.
