Vijana FM (“Youth FM” in Swahili) is a platform for visual, audio, or print content. The content is by the youth, and for the youth in East Africa. We host a studio crew of volunteers and partners who create public discussion using visual, audio, or written media.
To be a media-based platform that youth can use to share, exchange, and develop ideas for sustainable development in East Africa.
We do what we do because, before anything, we deeply value sustainable social entrepreneurship. We believe great things can come out of people starting small-scale, localized, and sustainable initiatives that not only target profits, but target the improvement in quality of life.
Vijana FM also believes in the power of informal education. We define “informal education” as the process of acquiring knowledge through human experience, collaboration, and interaction not necessarily in structured environments.
