Storymoja Festival is an international event that brings together and celebrates critical thinkers and great minds in storytelling, ideas sharing, writing and contemporary culture.

Due to the massive and dynamic nature of the festival, the selected reading revolutionaries will have an opportunity to explore their talents and abilities in a unique, exciting and stimulating work environment.  They will be challenged to stretch their capabilities and gain experience by actively engaging with teachers, parents and students. To add value to the process, the interns will undergo a carefully designed training programme aimed at equipping them with the skills to grow the festival audience and drive the reading revolution.

Do you turn blue with rage when people laugh at this horrible joke: If you want to hide money from a Kenyan, hide it in a book? Do you desire to see a Kenya with a vibrant knowledge and creative economy? Then you need to be part of our team!
