CALL FOR RADIO SERVICE PROVIDER APPLICATION
BID NO. 034/2019
Livelihoods for Resilience Activity (GRAD2) is a five-year project funded by USAID to contribute to the livelihoods component of the Ethiopian government’s Productive Safety Net Program (PSNP-4). The goal of the Livelihoods for Resilience Activity is to reduce food insecurity and increasing resilience for households in highland areas of three regions (SNNP, Amhara, and Tigray) in rural Ethiopia. In particular, the purpose of the Livelihoods for Resilience Activity is to enable up to 97,900 chronically food insecure households to graduate from the PSNP with resilience.
In order to achieve this goal, the project promotes diversified livelihoods options for households and supports inclusive market systems that are necessary for improving productivity and adding value. The project makes available an Innovation Fund to finance radio extension service provider institutions (Private/NGOs) using the existing local radio stations that contribute for implementing poultry values chain in North Shewa (Menzemama and Menzgera) and Hadiya zone woredas (Soru, Misha, Duna, Lemu 7 Anelemu). The ultimate aim of the project is that increased knowledge and uptake of improved techniques and innovations by households on poultry (egg/meat) value chain contributes to enabling chronically food insecure households to graduate from the PSNP with resilience.
The radio extension program will focus on the poultry value chain that provides an extension message on how to manage pullets at the PSNP HH small scale level, sharing success stories, encouraging discussion, and thereby promoting the uptake of improved poultry farming practices and innovations. The overall objective of the proposed solution is to enhance knowledge and skills of the HHs who engaged in poultry management as one of the selected value chains by the project through the extension message of broad casting radio services.
