Voice for Family Farmers campaign on air across Africa: YenKasa Africa Radio Initiative 2020

Start a dialogue!

For 12 weeks from late July to World Food Day, 110 radio stations across Africa celebrated the UN Decade of Family Farmers with our Voice for Family Farmers campaign. This radio campaign aims to raise awareness about the decade, the importance of family farmers, and their needs, particularly during this time of crisis. As part of this campaign, the YenKasa Africa initiative designed campaign materials to help participating radio stations talk about the importance of family farmers, particularly women and youth, and the role of farmer organizations and consumers in supporting family farmers.

This campaign was shared with 1,000 radio stations in Farm Radio International‘s network. 110 radio stations from 13 countries broadcast the radio spots and other resources. The response from radio stations in West Africa was overwhelming: 79 stations broadcast the Voice for Family Farmers campaign, including 26 stations in Mali and 26 in Senegal.
