About the Event

This documentary short focuses on the efforts of two women in Kenya's Dadaab and Ifo refugee camps to rebuilt their lives after being forced into early marriages. Through education, and their chosen occupations, they question gender based stereotypes, and provide hope for younger Somali women across the refugee camps. The film is part of the efforts of Kenya FilmAid to equip young Kenyan filmmakers with tools to tell their own stories.
