SCREENING AND Q&A / ‘MY BODY, MY LIFE’ WITH DR. GITAHI

During the United Nations General Assembly week, September 2017,  TCO and Amref Health Africa co-hosted a screening of ‘My Body, My Life’, the story of a 12-year-old Maasai girl that participates in an alternate rite of passage.

Following the screening, board member and philanthropist, Carol Jenkins, moderated a conversation with Amref Health Africa’s global CEO, Dr. Githinji Gitahi and Executive Director, Bob Kelty.  They discussed Amref’s work on the continent and how the organization is shifting narratives and helping lead the way into new rites of passage for girls.  The audience was invited to ask questions following the q&a, many resulting in larger conversations as to what we, as Americans, can do from afar, to make lasting change in Africa.
