As Media Village we are interested in using media skills for social change and development in Africa. We do that through training students on how to produce media materials that address social issues in Africa, and by producing edu-tainment films which we use for advocacy.
We run an initiative which partners with government and other Civil Societies members locally and internationally. This initiative is called - Media Campaign Against Human Trafficking (MeCAHT)
My recent production is a full- length film which was shot in Nigeria and Denmark in partnership with KIT-Denmark and the Danish Mission Council Development Department (DMCDD). The film ' Europe in my Heart' addresses the issue of human trafficking in girls from Nigeria, who are tricked and transported to Europe for sex. http://youtu.be/WUhzVO6g7r4
We have used this film as a tool to bring awareness of the problem of human trafficking in very rural areas in Africa, areas where public enlightenment information fail to reach. One of such areas was Benin City, the human trafficking capital of Nigeria, where 80% of African illegal prostitues in Europe come from.
We have also done work in the area of HIV/AIDS and are currently working on a production to reduce the rates of road accidents in Nigeria.
We work with youth and focus on social issues plaguing our African society. We seek to address such issues through education and film production.
