In early 2014, Link Community Development Ethiopia worked with partner agency Whizz Kids Workshop to develop local language audio-visual materials exploring the barriers girls face to attending and achieving in school. A group of girls from all the project target areas were selected to write the scripts and receive basic training in film production. The topics include domestic chores, early marriage, status of girls' education, HIV/AIDS, reproductive health and menstruation. The footage was shot on site in schools located in rural Wolaita Zone of south-western Ethiopia.
