GIRLS BEHIND THE CAMERA: MALAWI

Girls Behind the Camera was written, directed, produced, filmed, and produced by Malawian girl leaders to share the stories that have inspired them to become advocates.

In October 2014, six young women from around Malawi participated in "Girls Behind the Camera," an intensive six-day technical workshop focused on media advocacy. In addition to sharpening their digital storytelling skills, the girls wrote, produced, directed and recorded a nine-minute video sharing their experiences overcoming abuse and injustice. Each girl's story focuses on a key issue area she is working on - including access to education, child marriage, and sexual assault - to make a positive impact for girls in her community.
