Our video focusses on the social impact of the Northern Farming project in Harare as well as its commercial impact and highlights how an investment can be successful even in challenging contexts. We talked to many people involved in the project to bring to the fore the many benefits of the programme, including the value brought by AECF finance in the areas of business planning, corpsorate governance and financial management standards. This is one of our more in depth videos which brings to life the social impact of the project and how the project is helping business growth to improve lives in Zimbabwe.

NORTHERN FARMING PROJECT

Our inspiring film illuminates the story of the founders of the company who are experienced mobile technology innovators and shows how their belief in the huge potential of transformative, affordable products is changing lives and lighting up homes across rural Kenya.

Our film about Tandabui Health Access Tanzania (THAT) tells a story of growth and prosperity through health. KPMG managed THAT through their IDAS programme from 2012-2015, with funding from DFID and contributions from DANIDA, to raise awareness of health rights and healthy lifestyles, to target local leaders to be accountable for health governance and to develop a comprehensive health mapping survey report. Our film finds out from those involved, how the programme has helped them and how it has increased the responsiveness of Government in Tanzania, through a strengthened civil society.

We were asked by KPMG to produce three films and a portfolio of photographs that illustrate how they support international development across Kenya, Zimbabwe and Tanzania, by managing funds on behalf of donor governments and organisations.

The videos focus on the human stories behind the programmes run by the African Enterprise Challenge Fund (AECF), M-KOPA and IDAS and how project staff, government officials and local people are working together to make it happen.
