ABOUT | makmende

Makmende is a full service media production company specialized in stories for impact. We help brands and organizations to raise awareness on the issues of today, by telling stories that come straight from the communities we, and our clients, care about.

Locally produced content and globally spread. We design (online) media strategies and create concepts that help our clients to reach target audiences and enhance their social impact. We track and trace our results to make sure the message triggers the right people. 

Sustainable development is in our DNA, for the past 10 years we’ve worked alongside NGOs, governments and businesses that strive for a better world. We’ve seen NGOs become brands and brands become advocates. Our strategists and media experts make that cross-over work, addressing the social responsibility of brands and creating commercial quality for NGOs.

Curious to know what Mamende means?
If you’re from Kenya you may know, it’s Swahili slang for a person attempting to do what seems to be impossible.
The organizations and brands we partner with, all share some of that Makmende spirit. They’re innovating healthcare, challenging gender roles or advocating against climate change. If their message spreads, amazing things can happen.
We make sure their stories get told in a way that not only captivates, but also activates audiences.

HOW | talent is everywhere

How we do this? With lots of care, love AND the right people.
We are a network company, our core team of creatives, producers and strategists is based in Amsterdam. Working closely together with local professionals scattered around the globe, who have access to incredible stories and are able to produce them even in the most remote areas. This is an approach we strongly believe in and we have a long track record to prove its worth. We don’t fly in crews if we don’t need to, because talent is everywhere.

For each assignment we partner up with the best people for the job, who work alongside you and your team.

Audiences are savvy and the media is more transparent than ever. A story that is not truthful, will be easily dismissed. We present real stories that challenge our perceptions and are embedded in local culture.
