In partnership with Iles de Paix, Farm Radio International and the Arusha City Council, we have started an interactive radio campaign raising awareness about the importance safe and healthy food for everyone!

The campaign was launched on Saturday 16 January on the Kilombero market in Arusha. The guest of honour, Mr Chitukuro, Assistant Regional Administrative Secretary for Economic and Productive Sectors represented the Arusha Region, highlighting the importance of healthy, safe and nutritious food.

In the following weeks, 12 radio sessions will be broadcasted on different topics related to local, safe and healthy food. Technical experts, farmers and consumers will grab the microphone to set out several aspects as to why safe and healthy food is so important and how the local food system can be improved to make healthy food more affordable and accessible to all.

You can tune into Sunrise RadioTz and Redio Habari Njema 87.5 Fm to listen to the sessions. More information on the posters below.
