Mediae is an organisation that develops media productions and communication strategies in Africa. By producing educational, entertaining and effective media Mediae supplies vital knowledge and information in ways that are accessible and easily understood.
They have produced three television shows for the East African audience; Shamba Shape Up a series focusing on the world of agriculture, Makutano Junction a drama following the lives of a typical community and Know Zone a children's educational TV programme. Each show is highly researched and provides practical tools, solutions to real life dilemmas and key health concepts. They are hugely popular and watched by millions. In addition during every programme, audiences are invited to text-message from their mobiles if they would like a leaflet detailing more information on the key issues covered, or if they wish to interact with the show on other issues.
More specifically the Africa Knowledge Zone showcases all of their 'Edu-tainment' programmes which includes a very informative short film looking at Epilepsy which is posted below. They hope in the future to make a similar type of film focussing on Autism.
