Comics, radio and social media

    Award-winning Shujaaz is a multimedia project that has a real impact on the lives of some of the world's poorest people.

    Part-funded by UK aid, Shujaaz combines 500,000 monthly free comics, daily broadcasts on more than 23 syndicated radio stations and social media to engage with young people in Kenya.

    The comics and radio show feature four fictional young Kenyans whose stories evolve each month as they engage with a range of social issues from tribalism to preventing livestock disease.

    This month, Shujaaz kick starts a series of stories about the importance of nutrition.
