Today is a historic day in our journey to position ourselves right in the heart of the cradle of mankind as we launch our first ever regional office away from Nairobi.
It gives me great pleasure to invite you all to this launch that sends a signal that Turkana county and the entire region are ripe for investment. Your presence is a clear statement of your confidence in Chams Media work.
We are not new in Turkana, for we have produced and aired several eye-catching, inspiration, informative and engaging features about the county, away from the normal news narrative that tends to concentrate on problems. For us, opening this office is a step further in our vision to position ourselves in this region that has many positive untold stories. We will traverse the entire North Rift region whose population is about 10 million. The region is goldmine of interesting stories in various sectors including trade, tourism, environment, agriculture, culture, sports and peace building.
Our aim is turn our lenses on the entire eight counties of the region, namely, Turkana, Samburu, West Pokot, Elgeyo Marakwet, Uasin Gishu, Nandi and Baringo.
Devolution has brought visible social economic transformation in the so called marginalized areas of Kenya. Why not devolve content creation too?
You can find our content on our digital platforms including Chams Media TV YouTube channel. We produce documentaries, features, infomercials and commercials.
We are ready to partner with government entities, NGOs, religious organizations, media organizations and the private sector at large to produce and distribute content that transforms lives.
We have the state of the art technology and a competent team in Lodwar which will be supported by the team at our headquarters in Nairobi.
We also aim to contribute to promotion of talent in the region. Indeed it is already happening. We have nurtured local talent in various fields from videography to research, scripting and reporting.
Let’s grow together!
