The Spotlight Initiative aims to eliminate all forms of violence against women and girls in more than 25 countries, including across Africa.

Each of the five films, tells the story of a survivor or activist in Uganda, supported by the Spotlight Initiative.

Marcyline’s film is a defiant story of hope. After surviving an attack aged 14, she is now able to support herself and her young daughter.

Each film told a story of change, from a period of struggle and hardship, to one of hope and optimism.

By focusing on the stories of individuals, we were able to produce documentary films that were impactful and engaging. 

In Uganda, almost
95% of women
