When our female vocational students watch an interesting movie.


Last night, the lights were switched off, the cushions (𝘸𝘦𝘭𝘭, 𝘮𝘢𝘵𝘵𝘳𝘦𝘴𝘴𝘦𝘴) were laid out and popcorn was served, as our female vocational students sat down to watch Binti (daughter/young woman), the first Tanzanian movie on Netflix.

The Swahili-language film tells the story of 4 Tanzanian women, battling the complexities of love, motherhood and societal expectations.

At the end of the movie, Batuli, our Vocational Training Manager, led a spirited discussion on gender equality, and how our young women can challenge social stereotypes to become strong and successful, and achieve their dreams.
