This project will bring the film 'He Named Me Malala' into the Kakuma and Dadaab refugee camps as well as the Kibera slums in Kenya. 30,000 community members will watch the film through a series of screenings followed by guided discussions, generating dialogue around supporting girls' education in their own community.
Resource-poor communities are inhabited by people who have undergone harrowing transitions, fleeing from war or inter-ethnic conflicts in their countries of origin. They often struggle to access basic human rights like food and education.
FilmAid believes in harnessing the power of film and media to combat critical social issues. As a powerful and inspiring figure for girls' education worldwide and an Internally Displaced Person (IDP) as well, Malala's story is an incredible opportunity to demonstrate the importance of girls' education to the refugee population.
Empower these marginalized communities, especially the girls within them, to stand up for their right to 12 years of safe, quality education.
