Stories of Change: From the Kolda Region, Senegal, January 2013—This shares images from the field, and three short-short films (4–5 minutes) made by participants and funded by Sundance-Skoll's Stories of Change. To watch the films, click on the links below:

  • Waylo Waylo (Change)
    The story of 13 year-old Maounde, who was determined to be educated, and her father, who comes to understand the importance of girls' eduction.

  • The Crossing
    A story of interethnic marriage and the hope it offers for peace and security.

  • Peace Come In
    Stories of health, education, and the environment.
These films are being used by Tostan's staff in three different ways: at the local level to sensitize and educate people living in other villages in Senegal, Gambia, and Guinea Bissau and working with Tostan for the first time; to demonstrate to other NGOs working in Africa Tostan's unique approach; and, to raise awareness and understanding in the international community about positive change in West Africa facilitated by Tostan's work.

These films also show the extraordinary efforts of men and women, elders and youth to break from long-held traditions, perhaps making a small contribution to inspiring the efforts of others working toward peace and security, whatever their methods and wherever they may live.

Tostan's Model: Tostan’s intensive, three-year community-based approach to informal education in Africa starts in a classroom, teaching people about human rights—to health, education, a clean environment—after which participants disseminate or "diffuse" what they have learned to others in their families and communities, as well as to other villages. Tostan also works with each community to create their own infrastructure, called the Community Management Committee, with elected leaders who oversee community development and assure that the work lives on long after Tostan has left.
