Keeping The Promise Film Series

Set in the Iwaya community, an under-resourced neighbourhood in Lagos, Damilola, Polinu and Rebecca share their experiences about growing up in one of the city’s slums. Life is an inescapable nightmare: The heroines offer a rare peep into their world marred by extreme poverty, grief, sexual violence, and exploitation, unintended and early pregnancy. A timely intervention by Action Health Incorporated offers a ray of hope.

The education and well-being of girls is critical to nation building and development but is often not prioritized. Critical stakeholders- the government, members of the community, and civil society interventionists examine the education policy and prevailing assumptions as they relate to the dilemma of out-of-school girls in Nigeria’s poor and socially disadvantaged communities. They offer alternative viewpoints and suggestions for the way forward.

Why are so many young girls of school age on the streets trading and not in the classrooms where they belong? A lively radio discussion tackles various angles to this problem. The city is listening: some turn off, while others turn up the sound on their radio sets, oblivious to the unfolding tragedy in nearby Iwaya. A life lived on the blink leading to a preventable disaster. But in the ebb and flow, the pressures of the city, who really cares?
