Student Profile

Jane Wanjiru

“I work in a system where we persuasively transfer technology from researchers to farmers and categorize farmers into innovators, adopters and laggards. It is when I joined Rural Development and Communication course that I understood the social nature of technical practice , what farmers do or do not do has a reason. I thought about how to analyse complex realities like rape, child marriages, drug and alcohol abuse. I learned to integrate instructive or best practices into narratives, entertainment and communicating to the audiences how they can tackle complex issues. My organisation works on pre-determined objectives, but I learnt I have a role to change my organisation.”
