It feels nice when you can have a project where everything is up to you: text, storyboard, character design and animation… but it feels even better when it is for a good cause.
Guinea-Bissau is a Portuguese ex-colony, and its GDP per capita is one of the lowest in the world. Its Human Development Index is just as bad. More than two-thirds of the population lives below the poverty line… so it’s not surprising that most girls there do not have a proper access to education: most of the times (72% of the times!) they cannot even go to school since they are supposed to help their parents at home (or husband, since 37% of them get married before the age of 18).
Knowing that improving girls’ education is one of the fastest ways of improving the economical growth of a country, it is imperative to give these girls in Guinea-Bissau what they most need: a school for girls, where they are taught by women, in a protected environment for them to learn and grow.
