OUR LATEST FILM - MÉBÉT

MÉBÉT (A Mother's Plea) tells the story of one girl’s attempt to turn the tragedies of the past into lessons for the future. It is a conversation across generations to deliver positive change.

 

The film showcases aspects of West-African culture to counter the negative narratives about the continent, and portray the reality of our journeys through stories of resilience and hope.

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

Taking MÉBÉT where it matters most

MÉBÉT may be fiction, but the child marriage is reality for millions of girls around the world. For us, children’s voices matter, and they must be included in the conversations to end child marriage. We have begun engagements with adolescents and youth, through film screenings in schools and community centres.

Child marriage has been illegal in The Gambia since 2016. However, the implementation of this legislation is weak. We must do more to ensure that our laws serve their purpose and provide the required protection. These conversations are a great vehicle for accountability and advocacy for more action.

SCREENING - MÉBÉT

For over two years, we have worked on developing, producing and marketing MÉBÉT. It was an honour to present the film to the Gambian public in a sold-out premiere on the 17th January  2020, at the Ebunjan Theatre.
