Hello friends,

I'd like to share a video I just completed for Women's World Banking through my new company Media For Change. Depending on your internet connection, it may be a little difficult to view smoothly.

Here is the link: http://www.swwb.org/node/738

In solidarity, Rachel

    Thank you so much mamaAfrica! It means a lot to me that you took the time to watch. I'm also extremely happy to hear that you found the message clear, concise and illuminating. It's hard to achieve those goals in a 5-min video so that's part of my job as a filmmaker: to express a message, educate an audience, and do it in a way that still captivates and tells a good story.

    I have enjoyed reading about Project Africa and am very curious to hear how you were able to achieve such great heights, given the struggles you endured when you were young. How did you get where you are today? What were the first steps? And how did you link into the NGO scene in Sweden? You must be such an inspiration to the women you work with, and I'm quite sure they inspire you as well.

    I would absolutely love to document Project Africa's work in a short film. I am especially interested in how young women and girls are being trained to become economically self-sufficient because I believe they are a new generation of change makers who will make real, sustainable progress in Africa if we invest in them NOW. I would love to make a video that covers this theme.

    Be in touch! xo Rachel

    Dear Rachel, Wow! what a wonder video you have documented. Short but very inspiring. As you know I am also interest in this sector so I also want to join this organization. How can I join this organization to have a global connection. MY internet connection was slow so it took little long time but it is encouraging. Keep working.
