This film, Waylowaylo, was produced by local Tostan staff and community members following a participant-led filmmaking training by the NGO Venice Arts, supported by the Sundance Institute, the Skoll Foundation, the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida).
Waylowaylo also takes place in the community of Tankanto Maoundé. Waylowaylo means 'change' in Pulaar, and the film shows the changes in attitude in the community towards girls' education through the story of a girl named Maoundé Baldé and her father, Mamadou Baldé, the Village Chief.
This film is one of three stories from the field. Watch the other two films:
