Behind the Scenes of our Somali Co-production on COVID-19

In 2020 after our successful series “Ask Dr. Pamoja” we were asked to help write and produce a longer series for Somali audiences.  Here is a video made by the creator of the program.

Kenyan TV Interviews:

2017 Kenyan TV interview with Director Darren Collins and two parts of our Gender Equality puppet show.

In the fall of 2012 phase one of Project HAND UP involved primarily research & development and took place without the financial backing of a non-profit. Our director was using his time in country to see if the project would be feasible and effective and to seek partnerships.

Once progress was made, and the Project began to take shape and look like a worthwhile effort, Darren Collins was invited to share the project with a nationwide audience. These interviews were broadcast on highly rated tv stations in East Africa. They were very helpful for finding interested Kenyans who would later receive hours of hands-on training.

Dorren Appolos interviewed Darren for the widest (geographically speaking) broadcast audience on KBC.  After this interview, Darren received calls and requests for partnership from some of the rural areas of Kenya.  This interview was part of the health segment on The Good Morning Kenya show.

Here is the first interview with Debarl Inea, one of the favorite talk show hosts in Kenya.  Clearly, this was a nice diversion from the regular cavalcade of politicians and business leaders that are usually interviewed.  NTV re-broadcast this interview a month later.
