Bushtaxi is a collective of creative professionals focused on sharing the story of our developing world. We are accomplished writers, researchers, photographers, filmmakers and designers experienced in meeting the communication needs of NGOs and development agencies worldwide.
The backbone of developing communities, bush taxis are more than just a way of travelling from one town to another. Whether known locally as dala dalas, poda podas, tro tros, share taxis or tap taps, their passengers – old and young, doctors and students, mothers carrying babies, farmers carrying goats and chickens – come from across the spectrum of society. Versatile and robust, bush taxis are the ultimate collective experience; a vehicle for sharing news, exchanging ideas and deepening understanding of current events.
We are dedicated professionals who aim to make a difference, united by empathy and respect for our subjects as well as significant experience in the developing world. Like the bush taxi, we take you from A to B, whether you need us to be present from the beginning to the end or just part of the journey. We go to lively cities and remote places, working with integrity and passion to tell humanitarian stories with meaning. Well-versed in the communication aims of NGOs and agencies, we won’t hesitate to jump in a bush taxi, roll down the window and effectively convey what’s going on outside.
