    A series of radio programs on topics such as setting up a small business, using organic fertilizers, and harnessing solar power, is available for free download. Each program describes an issue or practice, speaks to people involved, and offers practical advice. The programs can be downloaded as complete audio files – either in the long version (15-17 minutes) or in three shorter segments (5-7 minutes each) – or as transcripts which may then be translated into local languages. The programs were developed by Open Learning Systems Education Trust and the Commonwealth of Learning, and can be found online at:
