ShujaazFM is a multimedia youth communication initiative which combines monthly comic books, daily radio programmes, and social media to look at a range of agricultural issues effecting young people across Kenya. The project combines three powerful and accessible youth-focused media:

  • nationally distributed free monthly comic books
  • daily syndicated FM radio and (planned) television programmes
  • interactive SMS (for audience feedback).
