Paa Born To Fly” – Meet all the actors of the web series by Kenya‘s version SKY Girls and know their roles, real names, ages, Instagram handles, and pictures.

Teen drama series Paa-Born to fly premiered last Sunday, March 13, 2022.

Sky Girls, a social program of teen girls, debuted the series, which stars an all-Kenyan ensemble.

The drama highlights the tale of three teenage girls living in Nairobi and coping with the everyday challenges of social pressure, sexual harassment, bullying, and self-identity crisis.

Coming from different backgrounds, these three girls are influenced by each other to make both positive and negative decisions.

The drama series written by Davina Leonard and directed by Enos Olik intends to delve into the lives of teens in order to motivate them to make healthy choices, resulting in behavioral transformation.

Olik says the name of the series was derived from the Swahili word paa, which means to fly. “By flying, we mean being inspired, getting successful, doing the things you love without following what other people think is cool,” he told Word Is.

Olik said the series does not target teenage audiences only since the highlighted subjects also affect older people. “It took about a month to film the six episodes. Everybody in the crew was dedicated. There was a lot of passion and happiness on set. We depicted our world. Like the school was locked, we went there and created our own set.”

Sky Girls Kenya began its journey in September 2020 with a mandate to connect, educate and inform teenage girls between the ages of 13 and 18 years within the greater Nairobi. “We teach girls to make choices that are true to their values, beliefs. We also teach them refusal mechanisms,” Sky Girls Kenya lead Svetlana Polikarpova said.

Many times teenage girls are susceptible to negative influence by the community around them because they are still navigating their identity crisis” Svetlana added.

The SKY Pledge

I promise to be true to myself and what I believe in.

To be who I am, not who someone else thinks I should be.

I will stay loyal to the things I am all about – like my friends, music, and finding my own path.

And stay away from the things I know I am good without – like backstabbing and bad company.

Because knowing what’s my thing and what’s not my thing helps make me who I am.

I will make choices that are true to me.

I promise to find my SKY.

More About Sky Girls

KY Girls Kenya began its journey in September 2020 with a mission to connect, empower and build confidence amongst teenage girls between the ages of 13-18 years within greater Nairobi. SKY gives teenage girls a supportive community of peers to help them follow their passions and say no to the things they know they’re good without.

Unlike other programs, SKY is built on the ethos of ‘by girls for girls.’ Rehema Muniu, Spokesperson & Sky Parent highlights “There are so many pressures on girls today. It is important that as communities we take the time to understand the way these young girls live their lives; their hopes, fears, aspirations. Through doing so we can create programs that allow our Kenyan girls choice and control to feel empowered”.

The Sky program is designed and built around things young girls love to do and talk about; whether it’s through the thriving community of over 50,000 girls on social media or in-person engagement within schools and estates. 

‘SKY’ the magazine is a hugely successful communication medium co-created with young teen girls. To date, SKY has run six editions with 160,000 print copies circulated across the city. One of its most popular segments ‘what I wish my 15-year-old self knew’ highlights advice from well-known female personalities including Elodie Zone, Tracy Wanjiru and Ivy Mugo.

SKY S.I.S.T.A’ (Sky is Staying True Always) is a two-season show touching on teen interest topics. It is the only show specifically designed to address themes teen girls care about.  The show has enjoyed over 15million views.

Off the back of the positive reception, SKY has received in the past 18 months, the program is proud to introduce its latest initiative – a brand-new teen drama by Kenyans for Kenyan girls. ‘PAA – Born To Fly’. Written by Davina Leonard, produced by Enos Olik, and a soundtrack by Emma Cheruto. This miniseries follows the story of three teenage girls living in Nairobi and dealing with the everyday challenges of peer pressure, sexual harassment, bullying, and self-identity crisis. Coming from different backgrounds, these three girls are influenced by each other to make both positive and negative decisions. The drama aims to explore the lives of teenagers and in turn, encourage them to make positive choices thus leading to behavioral change.

Rehema Muniu, further adds “Evaluations of SKY programmes elsewhere in Africa show that 83% of girls believe SKY helped them think about their future and what they want and 78% of girls believe SKY made them feel more confident in resisting peer pressure. As a mother, I know that I cannot control all the information my daughter has access to. But I am reassured that there are programs that we can participate in to help our girls navigate this new world of uncertainty.”

In a post Covid19 world nearly 50% of Kenyan adolescents are experiencing symptoms related to depression, and 39% of teen girls are undergoing physical abuse according to the Presidential Policy & Strategy Unit Report 2021. 

Locally, the program is a thriving community that impacts more than 40,000 girls per quarter through estate activations. At the heart of it is research to understand what motivates young girls in their wider lives. By giving girls a platform to speak out SKY aims to help parents, teachers, and guardians nurture teenage girls who are healthy, happy, and can go on to become active women in the future. 

Mother and noted personality Caroline Mutoko highlights, “There’s a part of me that wishes this “SKY sistahood” of teen girls were there when I was growing up. A place that said I didn’t have to be like others…that it was okay to stay true to who I was and what I believed in. A friendly community to help teen girls build the resilience needed to be self-determined young women.”
