Traditional Music and Dancing on African Women's Day

July 31st was Pan African Women’s Day Celebration and it was quite a feast in Bali- Nyonga. What an incredible experience to witness all those women arriving from all corners of the Northwest region and uniting against the exploitation of women and the girl child.

In the following video, you will find some excepts of traditional dances and educational sketches performed by community members to bring awareness about harmful cultural practices such as forced marriage.
