FARM RADIO FORUM PROJECT-GHANA, 1964-65.
ABELL, HELEN C.
IN 1964-65 THE GOVERNMENT OF GHANA, IN COOPERATION WITH UNESCO AND THE GOVERNMENT OF CANADA, CARRIED ON THE FARM RADIO FORUM PILOT PROJECT IN 80 VILLAGES IN GHANA TO TRANSMIT INFORMATION AND STIMULATE RURAL SELF-HELP ACTIVITIES. IN 20 VILLAGES ONE FORUM LISTENING GROUP WAS ORGANIZED, 20 VILLAGES HAD TWO LISTENING GROUPS, 20 CONTROL VILLAGES WERE SUPPLIED WITH RADIOS BUT NO LISTENING GROUPS WERE FORMED, AND 20 HAD NO RADIOS AND NO LISTENING GROUPS. THROUGH PRE- AND POST-BROADCAST QUESTIONNAIRES, IT WAS FOUND THAT THE LISTENING GROUPS CONTRIBUTED TO VILLAGERS' COMPREHENSION OF SUCH SUBJECTS AS INTER-VILLAGE COOPERATION, FORMATION OF COOPERATIVES, AND FOOD NUTRITION. IT WAS RECOMMENDED THAT ONLY ONE LISTENING GROUP PER VILLAGE BE FORMED IN THE FUTURE, AND THAT THIS GROUP BE REPRESENTATIVE OF THE SEX, EDUCATIONAL LEVEL, AND OCCUPATIONS OF THE ADULT POPULATION, THAT MODIFIED LISTENING GROUPS BE ORGANIZED IN SMALL OR REMOTE VILLAGES WHERE THERE IS NO RESIDENT LITERATE ADULT TO SERVE AS GROUP SECRETARY, AND THAT A POLICY-MAKING STEERING COMMITTEE, REPRESENTATIVE OF GOVERNMENT MINISTRIES AND ORGANIZATIONS CONCERNED WITH RURAL LIFE, BE FORMED TO GUIDE FUTURE FORUM ACTIVITIES. (APPENDIXES INCLUDE QUESTIONNAIRES USED.) THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF GUELPH, GUELPH, ONTARIO. 179 PAGES. (AJ)
