Benjamin Dembele, President of the Urban Group for Poultry and Farm Development in Bonoua, Côte d Ivoire, tells us 'how our fifteen farms get together to get and discuss Spore. When we go back to town, we run a reading club to reach out to more entrepreneurs. We are all convinced that Spore is a communication tool for rural communities. We could even say that Spore means to us what the Internet means to developed countries. In fact, Spore is our Internet, an essential tool. And, we want to be kept up to date with everything going on in agriculture, so Spore should consider setting up a radio station, with no advertising.' We are hearing you loud and clear, Mr Dembele. Maybe one day you will be on the radio too! Perhaps the local FM station in Mpraeso, north-west of Accra in neighbouring Ghana, cannot be received in Bonoua. That s a shame because Samuel K Allotey, who works with the Ministry of Food and Agriculture there, broadcasts an extension show. 'Although I am not a well-trained radio presenter, your information in Spore has helped me a lot in the presentation of agricultural programmes on the station. My listeners have shown much interest and acknowledged that the programme is actually serving its result-oriented purpose.' Do you broadcast, or listen to, radio programmes which use material from Spore? Please write in and tell us.
