Upcoming Impact Strategies to Accompany Film's Release:

Comic book of LIYANA's story

• Classroom materials

Swazi children's college fund

Community screenings in Swaziland

• Interactive story website

Storytelling workshops

• Swazi Youth Mentorship program

We aim to cultivate the culture of hope and pride in the Swazi nation and across the southern African region. We will use the fictional story of a young African heroine to inspire the next generation of southern African leaders to embrace their own strength and identities. We will encourage young people to make their voices heard, and to unite their communities as they look for world-changing solutions within themselves. Ultimately our goal is to use the power of storytelling to dispel misconceptions about vulnerable African populations from the outside, as well as improve the confidence in their own potential to help others and to make the world a better place.

UPDATE: LIYANA awarded Bertha/BRITDOC Connect Fund Grant!
