We give children a future by allowing them to go to school and get an education.
This way they are visible and part of the community.
We provide awareness & social change among the population.
We do this through education in schools and awareness campaigns about albinism.
Our ambassadors and volunteers visit schools and villages in remote areas.
There, education is provided through a children's book Moon (Mwezi in Kiswahili), teachers and caregivers receive separate training and a 'Teachers Manual'.
A beautiful animation of the book Moon was made in 2020 and won two awards at the WIFF in Zanzibar in 2021!
The Moon animation is displayed on local buses that travel throughout Tanzania and is shown at events and information sessions.
Through nice cooperation with several large buscompagnies in Tanzania, we show the animation Moon/Mwezi in the long distance busses. As a result, we have a hugh audience for our message of inclusion!
Screenings of the Dutch movie White Berry on universities in Tanzania. This project is in cooperation with the Dutch Embasy in Dar Es Salaam.
Dutch-African Grace has fled Burundi with her mother and suffers from albinism and, with her white skin and poor eyesight, feels like an outsider. When she meets dancer Kya and her friends, a new world opens up for her. How far is she willing to go to belong to the group and go beyond her own limits?
If you want to get to the root of the stigma, discrimination and prejudice surrounding albinism, education is the starting point. Why a film: A film is accessible to young and old. By screening to young adults on universities we create awareness. Also through our screenings on bus routes, you have a particularly large reach.
The film WHITE BERRY successfully received the Certificate of Approval for Films and Plays No. 2023/08/012 from the Tanzania Film Council, allowing the film to be shown in any region of Tanzania for an unlimited time.
