With media and theater workshops for youth in Central America, a brand new second season of the Voice of America Documentary TV Series Our American Story in the United States, and several new projects in East Africa, this is looking like quite the year… But before we get to any of that, Rana Labs is thrilled to ring in the new year with two major updates!
First, we are now in East Africa! In our work, opening an office in Uganda means we are immersed in the region and truly understand what it takes to produce content here and to help develop new content creators. For that reason, we decided to open a full-time office in Kampala. We’re honored to be based in the Design Hub, one of the most creative and inspiring places to be in the city, and are already meeting incredible talent in this space. From content creators to community-based organizations taking on social change, there is so much going on and we can’t wait to see how our work develops. We’ll have more updates soon on what we’re up to on this side of the globe… Stay tuned.
Second, we are so excited to have added Valeria Gelman to our full-time team in December. She has been working with us for quite some time now as a consultant, producing Russian-language TV shows with us across the country. She is an extremely talented producer, fluent in Russian and Spanish, and has been all over the world in her work and personal travel. Her dedication to finding the best stories for TV and establishing personal connections with people across the country is what makes our projects successful and fun. Learn more about Valeria on the About Us page and follow her updates on Instagram as the show progresses!
