The Keepers Zambia Foundation (KZF) field staff have been using their respective local radio stations for several weeks now to spread the word about Kit Yamoyo and keep the brand in people’s minds.
The approach has been different in each district. Katete has run weekly Kit Yamoyo ‘shows’ where they talk with the show’s host about Kit Yamoyo, what it does, how to use it and where to buy it from. In Kalomo they are running this advert, featuring one of the kalomo Chiefs – Chief Chikanta – three times a day:
Here’s a translation courtesy of Albert Saka of KZF:
Keepers Zambia Foundation (KZF) is an NGO implementing COTZ Project in Kalomo and Katete Districts. The project promotes an Anti-Diarrhoea Kit (ADK) called Kit Yamoyo.
The kit has 8 eight sachets of ORS, Zinc tablets, soap and instruction leaflet written in English with translations in Tonga and Nyanja.
Learn how to use Kit Yamoyo in your house because diarrhoea can occur at any time even at night.

This advert features a re-mix of the original Kit Yamoyo Song which has verses in Nyanja and Tonga. The remix was done locally as it was felt that the whole advert should be in Tonga.
Here is the Tongo re-mix of the Kit Yamoyo Song:
