Great Stories Begin at Home
We know that the best stories are told by the very people who have lived them. Vivid descriptions, cultural sensitivity, and a deep heart knowledge of the characters involved are what set community-voiced stories well apart from stories told by the most experienced writer.
We call out and nurture these stories. We train rural youth to tell their stories and broadcast their voices to the nation.
iKasi Voices is a 13-part series of short episodes made up of our graduate’s content from across the country.
We are iKasi Creative.
We know that digital media tells a story and gives a voice to a generation. As digital media takes its place in a digital revolution we open up opportunities for rural youth to participate in the new creative economy. So we reach out with our DIGITAL MEDIA CONTENT CREATOR programmes. Our goal is to see massive change brought to rural youth through employment, job creation and entrepreneurial development.
Helping you celebrate Diversity and Transformation
iKasi Creative Media is a non-profit level 1 B-BBEE contributor. We assist media companies to meet their B-BBEE obligations through our accredited skills development programmes and unaccredited training.
iKasi Media’s Vision is to give hope and purpose to marginalized and previously disadvantaged youth classified as NEET (Not in Employment, Education or Training) in South Africa.
