Our Core Values
Africa Women Filmmakers Trust believes that participatory media is effective in educating, creating awareness, movement building and cultural expression.
Africa Women Filmmakers Trust
Africa Women Filmmakers Trust uses the participatory approach in its work. AWFT believes that the participatory approach is extremely powerful in giving recognition to marginalised individuals and communities, which then generates the sense of empowerment that enables them to take action for social change.
We envision a world in which the media is not perceived as a tool to disenfranchise any groups in society but allows and fosters participation at all levels by everyone.
Africa Women Filmmakers Trust works to advance gender equality and justice through the use of information and communication technologies by facilitating content production and dissemination that supports girls, women and disadvantaged communities to take informed choices.
Taking into cognizance that information communication technologies are a gendered tool, AWFT strives to address imbalances in the access and use of ICT’s hence the adoption of the participatory approach which is empowering to its subjects, giving them a voice hence becoming protagonists of their own development.
Assist in the creation of more informed and empowered communities with the capacity to make individual and collective informed decisions.
