Now out! September edition of SAYANSI magazine (by MESHA)

The Media for Environment, Science, Health and Agriculture (MESHA) in Nairobi, Kenya just launched the sixth issue of their SAYANSI magazine. You can read it online here.

MESHA is an organization that provides support to science journalists covering health, development, technology, agriculture and the environment. It offers science communication training workshops, consultancies and encourage networking through meetings and conferences among journalists, scientists and other stakeholders in Kenya.

The association emphasizes on rural journalism and communication. The idea for the formation of this association sprang up from the fact that there were many organizations and communicators in the fields of agriculture, environment, health and development. However, few organizations in the region bring journalists covering these issues together for better reporting in the media.

MESHA believes that in a democratic society where science must be answerable to the public, there is need to find new and innovative ways of effective mass communication about the benefits of science, and other areas of concern to the general public. It aims to ensure continuity, sustainability and consistent coverage of science and development issues as they arise.

MESHA is now accepting articles for the November issue up to September 30, 2016. Please send your suggestions to Daniel Aghan via aghan@meshakenya.org.
