“Facebook tools have been beneficial for creative and innovative talent across Africa. Now more than ever, creatives need innovative ways to share content that could provide sustainable income streams,” says Creatives Garage Founder and Managing Director Liz Kilili.

The campaign will run till December 16th 2020.

“One of our key roles is investing and supporting African youth with diverse creative talent. #RealpeopleRealstories aims to encourage people to share their experiences and motivate others to find solutions to everyday challenges,” Facebook’s Communications Manager for Eastern Africa Janet Kemboi said.
