Mpeke Town is a drama TV series set in the fictional town of Kabulonda Mpeke, in central Uganda.
The aim of the show is to improve the quality of management within farmer groups in Uganda, encouraging best practice in agricultural production and thus enhancing rural livelihoods. Moreover, the show seeks to improve access to inputs, finance, markets and, most importantly, promote the concept of farming as a family business where planning, resource allocation and labour activities are shared out amongst the family members in a collaborative fashion and where land ownership is fair.
Mpeke Town is produced in both Luganda and English by The Mediae Company, an organisation dedicated to addressing the informational needs of East Africans through sustainable media productions that are entertaining, educative and help improve livelihoods.
Ultimately, Mpeke Town is all about opening self to possibility and rewards that come with discovering farming’s untapped potential.
