Shamba Shape Up began airing in 2012, and is Kenya's first agricultural makeover show. Through our one-of-a-kind formula, we have risen to become a household name. Numerous copy-cat programs have since sprung up.
Field work is carried out each year to determine
what the audience is interested in learning about, what they have learnt from
the show and what practices they have adopted. This forms the basis of the
content for each series.
It is not a top-down documentary or purely instructional
program. By visiting farmers in their own environments and addressing their issues and problems, we give them a feeling of inclusion.
We are entirely funded by an array of private and development sector partners as well as input suppliers. These vital relationships allow us to get practical agricultural content out to farmers in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda.
