location Arts at the Old Fire Station | 5:30 PM-6:30 PM Thursday 16 April 2015 (GMT)

A global community of changemakers from marginalized communities?

A rough cut pre-screening of an unreleased documentary (by Marijn Poels) which explains the grass root social change concept of "kanthari" through an African road trip by the founders to re-connect with four remarkable change makers in Kenya and Uganda: Monicah Kaguithia - daughter of a Masaai, fighting against female genital mutilation in the Rift Valley; Jayne Waithera - woman with albinism, advocating for the rights of persons with albinism in East Africa; Stephen Onyang - who lost his family due to HIV and is transforming the lives of HIV orphans at Lake Victoria; Ojok Simon – visually impaired, initiator of a beekeeping cooperative run by visually impaired in Northern Uganda. After the film a short Q&A about including marginalized groups in the global community of social change makers. Trailer: https://vimeo.com/120870733
