Radio Ergo is on air every day across Somalia and the Somali-speaking region with original humanitarian news and information in Somali. The programming is based on local reporting gathered by our unique network of correspondents and material prepared by Radio Ergo’s staff producers. Their focus is on amplifying the voices of ordinary Somalis enabling better communication with the wider international humanitarian community, and providing Somali audiences with the critical information they require to make better-informed choices on issues affecting their lives. Radio ERGO provides the Somali population with valuable and life-saving information through programming on issues that include health and HIV/AIDS, education, conflict prevention, protection, gender equality, employment opportunities and environmental protection. This diverse set of topics enables Somali listeners to make better-informed decisions in their communities and for their families. They work with NGOs, agencies and other partners on the development of effective messaging and programming content, although Radio Ergo remains editorially independent. The word “ergo” in Somali means mediators or envoys in the interest of people in need. It is, therefore, a word that carries significance and resonance.
