Family Health International (FHI) has made its “interactive radio toolkit” available online. The toolkit is designed to help users develop a plan for integrating interactive radio into agricultural development work.
The toolkit is divided into six components. Each component has worksheets and templates, which are also included in the accompanying DVD. These tools are designed to help users tailor the implementation plan to their own situation.
The primary audience for the toolkit is USAID implementing partners and other development organizations that are using or planning to use radio to enhance the impact of their agricultural and rural development projects. FHI states that the toolkit will appeal to practitioners planning to work through established radio stations or disseminate audio recordings independently of radio (i.e., MP3 players or mobile phones).
