Young people living in rural Africa are actively engaging in their own development because of radio, says the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).

A communication project supported by FAO called Dimitra is being used as a platform to disseminate information and share experiences on farming and food security.

Working with local and community stations, the project allows rural populations to enter into partnerships to find solutions to their problems.
