In my travels to Africa and Asia, I noticed how especially in rural areas and on public transport, people often listened to radio and how it was a unifying force in communities. It was fun for me to write and to do the research for this story and discover the many ways that an NGO like Mercy Corps could tap in to the technology of radio. With COVID‑19 lockdowns and travel bans worldwide, online connection replaced in-person interaction. But how do you learn from home with no smartphone or internet access?
