Voice of Kigezi
B’Omugaiga means “Get rich through farming." The station manager says they chose this name to inspire women to be interested in the program. B’Omugaiga first aired five years ago, after Voice of Kigezi partnered with Farm Radio International on a project. They are still on air today, engaging women listeners with a compassionate female host: Brenda Murangi Mugwisagye. This station was the winner of the inaugural Liz Hughes Award for Her Farm Radio.
