Just in time for International Women's Day... it's time to get schooled in the of netball. Mama Hope believes that everyone should have a say in how they're represented. When asked what they would make a film about, the women of the Nyamonge neighborhood of Chiga village in Kisumu, Kenya said, "Netball. We always see African women as sad and poor. We want to make a video about something we love."

These women are multidimensional. Some own small businesses. Some farm, sell dried fish, make bread, sell fabric and scarves, or sing for a living. All of them are mothers and most are caregivers for orphans in their own home. They are leaders of water committees and microfinance groups. They also carry water on their heads for miles, live in one room homes with mud packed walls, and worry about paying their children's school fees. Their ability is infinite and inspiring. Amongst all this, It's practice four times a week and, at times, walking over four miles for tournaments. These ladies don't mess around.

Stop the Pity. Unlock the Potential.
