About Street Talk TV –
Since 2008 Street Talk TV, an NPO & thus a small organisation, has filmed and broadcasted over 650 conversations in a weekly television series to audiences across Southern Africa. This unique methodology brings awareness to issues which would often not be addressed in mainstream media. The audience is able to engage with these issues on free to air platforms which have an extensive reach into marginalised communities nationwide.
