In the Spring 2011, The European Union’s development fun, CEFA, presented Khanga Rue Media with the unique communication challenge of getting East Africans to recognize the employment potential of the most marginalized and neglected segment of the population: people with disabilities.
Collaborating with CEFA, Radar, and CCBRT, Khanga Rue executed a full media campaign (print, radio, TV) aimed at substantially increasing employment of people with disabilities.
Khanga Rue Media created a PSA campaign with the slogan “What Qualities Do You Look for in an Employee?” focusing on the positive qualities inherent in people with disabilities in the work force: courage, determination, loyalty, and commitment. This powerful campaign is all the more credible for featuring disabled Africans currently working for some of the most recognizable companies.
360 campaign across Radio, Print, TV urging Tanzanians to give blood. KRM designed & executed all materials, including logo, brochures.
In 2012 Khanga Rue Media partnered with Africa Practice to produce a four-part documentary series titled: “How Mining Works for Tanzania”. Shot on location across different mines in Tanzania, the bilingual (English and Swahili) series addressed some of the misconceptions and myths associated with large-scale industrial mining.
Meant to educate, enlighten, and entertain, the series will be running through the fall in cable networks across Africa and nationally in Tanzania.
In 2012, Khanga Rue Media launched SimGas, the first ever retail biogas stove in East Africa. Khanga Rue Media, beginning with the logo, tagline, and product packaging design, developed a television, radio, and activation campaign that is making SimGas synonymous with healthy living and clean cooking.

Simtank is a household name in Tanzania and now Kenya. But with increasing competition from other plastics manufacturers, it was time for a fresh above-the-line campaign. Featuring legendary East African comedian, Kingwendu, KRM created a funny and much talked about TV campaign along with a complete product branding overhaul and complimentary print campaign to boost sales and refresh the brand among consumers' consideration set.
In 2010, Khanga Rue’s founding principals developed a groundbreaking new national Malaria awareness campaign in concert with the Tanzania Ministry of Health and Malaria No More – an American based NGO committed to ending Malaria deaths by 2015.
We created a highly successful, fully integrated 360° media campaign, with messaging delivered across TV, Print, OOH, Radio and experiential platforms, all of it kick started by one of the most visible launch events in Tanzanian history.
In an effort to make ‘Zinduka’ a movement as much as it was a message, the campaign featured contributions from some of the most recognizable stars in the country – musicians, athletes and entertainers.
President Kikwete and First Lady Mama Kikwete were prominently featured as participants throughout the campaign.
To date, Khanga Rue Media has created over a dozen PSAs for both local and international audiences, making “Zinduka” a household word in Tanzania synonymous with Malaria Prevention. The campaign has educated and engaged millions of Tanzanian youth, while securing numerous, high value corporate partnerships and funding both in Tanzania and around the world.
Needing to raise awareness and their profile about the work they do with youth in Tanzania, the UK NGO Restless Development asked KRM to come with a concept that would resonate with the young people who are the focus of their initiatives. What better way to create media that connects with youth than to recruit young people to tell their own stories, in the own words and images? That's exactly what we did. Beginning with an intensive documentary filmmaker's workshop, Restless Development and KRM identified five young, remarkable individuals who are changing their communities, taught them how to make a documentary, and sent them out to capture their stories in an original documentary series. Set to launch August 2013. Watch this space.
In 2012, Uongozi Institute asked KRM to become its production and communication partner for two new original interview series entitled: "Meet the Leader", and "In Focus" addressing some of Africa's most pressing challenges through the eyes of some of the continent's leaders and foremost experts.
