ADPP shows “Girls Inspire" at INSTIDOC

HD INSTIDOC 2018 Ciclo 13 17112018ADPP Mozambique will show this Thursday, November 15 at the Cultural Center France Mozambique, the documentary entitled "Girls Inspire", in the context of the 5th Edition of INSTIDOC - Documentary Institutional Cycle.

"Girls Inspire" is a documentary showing the life stories of Samira, Talia and Arminda, three young women from Nacala, whose marriage and motherhood interrupted their ambitions to continue their studies. By giving voice to their stories, they accepted the challenge of interpreting themselves as actresses. With their participation in the film, they show that it is never late to make the dreams become true.

This ADPP documentary film portrays the work that the organization has been developing in Nacala in partnership with the Commonwealth of Learning - COL, funded by the Government of Canada through the project called "Girls Inspire", which aims to combat early and forced marriage, and other barriers that prevent women and girls from participating fully in society.

In its 2018 program, the international film festival proposes short films and feature films that address issues of Environment and Sustainability, Culture, Human Rights, Economic and Social Development, Education, Gender and Health, which are Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations.
