SKY Girls Initiative, a Kenyan empowerment program for teenage girls has announced the return of their highly-acclaimed mini-series “PAA – BORN TO FLY” for a second season. The show was nominated for the Best Viewer’s Choice award at the Kalasha Film & TV Awards in 2022. It follows the lives of teenage girls living in the bustling capital city of Nairobi as they navigate the challenges of social pressure, sexual harassment, bullying, and self-identity.
In the upcoming season, the show will delve deeper into important issues such as HIV and seek to debunk myths surrounding the virus. The goal of “PAA – BORN TO FLY” is to motivate young girls into making healthy choices and also to provide them with a supportive community of peers.

We co-create experiences and content that empower teen girls with the confidence they need to make the best choices for their lives.”
