Scarlet is a standard magazine publishing and distribution company that is based in Kisumu, Kenya. Our niche as a magazine publishing company covers News, Entertainment, Business, Fashion, and Beauty. Our main product is information delivery and online platforms, community outreaches and word of mouth are some of the main channels scarlet uses to reach out to its audience. Scarlet Magazine focuses on telling and highlighting issues affecting the community in the sectors of health, environment, agriculture and livelihood improvement, peace, and governance. Part of our main aims goals is to create employment to the youths at the community level, our main focus on this is to reduce rural to urban migration and to come to develop a community that youths are inspired and self-motivated. There is also weak partnership and linkages with CSOs, corporates between community magazines and other key stakeholders that will enhance the utilization of evidence-based reports to highlight issues affecting the community in the key sectors. Most corporates and CSOs rely on mainstream media, communication personnel, and social media pages to highlight issues. This approach although having been established to be effective it has noted to be not efficient since most organizations spend a bigger percentage of their funds on programming activities while setting a little or no funds for publicity of their activities. The scarlet magazine intends to create a platform for corporates, CSOs, and the community to highlight issues. On return on investment, Scarlet Magazine is looking for partners who can help create change in the community and work for hand in hand to build a great community. Scarlet being an upcoming magazine we are working on printing our very first hardcopy of the magazine but we have done plenty of writings on online platforms, visit our website at
