Good advice | Mama Cash

Have you ever received a well intentioned yet horrendous piece of ‘good advice’?

These young girls in Uganda certainly have:
‘Wash your vagina with Coca Cola to prevent pregnancy’.
‘Wear a miniskirt to get a man’.

Fortunately, nowadays such silliness just makes them laugh. Who said feminism couldn’t be fun?

Mama Cash asked us to show that girls are not just future leaders but today’s. Meet the young activists who are working together to change Africa. “We understand ourselves better together and learn more.”

At Makmende we tell real stories, straight from the communities. We always challenge ourselves to create video’s and campaigns that highlight positive stories and show people in their strength. That’s why we are very proud that this video won the IDleaks Hoogvlieger Award 2018.

Drop us a line if you’re working on something that could use a little of the Makmende spirit
