Komaza is a unique student-run magazine featuring the international development experiences of MIT students. Our publication presents these stories with a bright design, an informal style, and ample amounts of eye-catching photos. We strive to present diverse content ranging from students' project details to their cultural experiences and ultimately to spread the word about what work is happening in this field, in a fun and easy-to-read format.
"[Bina] Choi founded the publication after she learned about the many international development opportunities available to MIT students. Rather than choosing just one of these options, she decided to create a magazine that would showcase the variety and introduce other students to development work and encourage them to get involved. The magazine debuted in spring 2009 and is now an ASA-approved campus group.
"The word 'komaza' is a Swahili verb meaning to encourage development and aid growth. 'Our team feels that students involved in international development embody this idea of komaza, because they help make substantial change in the world. We hope that by sharing their stories, we’ll promote further international development,' said Choi." ---from the MIT News Office, http://web.mit.edu/newsoffice/2009/komaza-magazine.html
