Maryam Charles, our youth facilitator at Zapha+ in Zanzibar,  has proudly completed a course in film and video production at the Kilimanjaro Film Institute at Arusha, Tanzania.

Maryam shares her excitement and confidence that the 6 month course gave her, and plans to prepare training for the youth reporters in the basics of camera and editing skills.

Other than camera operating and an introduction to editing, she also focused on storytelling and creativity skills. “The training was good, I liked the way the teachers gave practical exercises. Their effort, advice and flexibility during the training was so great.”

“At the end of the course I am happy to say that the training has been so successful, the skills and confidence I acquired is more than I expected. ”
