SHOW LAUNCHES IN MEXICO: MORE THAN 3 MILLION TUNE IN DAILY
 
Lights. Camera. ¡Acción! On January 2oth, film reels rolled and cameras flashed as Vencer el Miedo (“Overcome the Fear”) launched to dramatic fanfare in Mexico. The co-production of Population Media Center (PMC) and Televisa set out with a sky-high goal: to captivate viewers across Mexico while inspiring social change, addressing challenges affecting young women across the nation.
 
And by all accounts, Vencer el Miedo has reached and surpassed every expectation so far. While the telenovela was expected pre-broadcast to reach 2.5–3 million regular viewers, it has since captured the attention of over 3 million each day.

LIVING BETTER TOGETHER: KWISHILYA Improves A Marriage
 
Alice and Geoffrey Mwaba’s romance was a whirlwind. The two met in the streets of Tazara township in Zambia when Alice was 18 and Geoffrey was 24, marrying within a year. Their first child arrived that same year, and another five children eventually followed.

Trouble started a few years into their relationship when financial challenges arose. Costs to put their children through school mounted, and work was slow for Geoffrey, who sold roofing sheets in Shangayi Market. Additionally, critical of Alice staying out late with friends and relatives, Geoffrey went to his own friends for advice and was encouraged to “discipline” her.
