Try and watch this video without crying. It’s so touching to see the strength and positivity of a movement like this. And every now and then we like to take a moment to virtually high five awesome organisations like Ni Nyampinga. It’s a super fun way to create behavioural and social change in an immediate and relevant way.
The NGO Girl Effect helped develop Ni Nyampinga.
Meaning ‘beautiful girl inside and out who makes wise decisions’ in Rwanda’s language Kinyarwanda, the purpose of Ni Nyampinga is to give adolescent girls in Rwanda the information and inspiration to fulfil their potential.
A multimedia editorial platform that is made for girls, by girls. Positive, inspiring, educational and entertaining, it’s a multimedia editorial platform spanning magazine, radio and mobile.
In a country where often the future of girls is inextricably tied to a man, the platform helps connect girls to opportunities so that they can stand on their own two feet.
Little Citizens is so impressed with the way they’ve gotten organised and their presence online and the impact they are having on children in Rwanda. This is a totally life affirming watch.
