What’s the difference between a FRW subscriber and a Farm Radio International broadcast partner?
– An FRW subscriber is someone who has signed up online. Our objective is to serve African radio broadcasters, but we welcome all those who are interested in our content. . It’s quick and easy to subscribe online at: http://farmradio.org/english/partners/fr_weekly_subscribe.asp.
-A Farm Radio International broadcast partner is an African radio organization that wishes to work more closely with our organization to create radio programs with and for small-scale farmers. Partners receive new script packages via e-mail or by post, whichever is more appropriate for the partner. In exchange for receiving free scripts, Farm Radio requests that a partner choose the scripts that are relevant to farmers in its area, adapts them, translates them into local languages (if necessary), and shares them with listeners or collaborators whenever possible; provides feedback on how the material has been used; and shares local information that we can include in future scripts and other services.
