Gender-based violence in Luanda

Participatory video-project


The project aimed for an advanced training for the participants of the "Christian Association of Young Women" / YWCA network, who had already participated in a participatory video workshop in 2013.
The focus of the training was on video-pre-Production (with an emphasis on script-writing) and post-production (with an emphasis on video editing). The goal was to equip YWCA activists with additional knowledge and skills to independently produce video material to spread to their target groups.


  • Teaching of advanced script-writing- & video-production-skills
  • Various lectures on research- and interview-techniques
  • Video-documentation of the "16 Days against gender based violence"-Campaign, to be included within one final video
  • Filming of necessarry interviews and images, elaboration of the narrations and its recordings


Production of two educational documentaries:

1.) “Sexual violence within the family in Luanda“
2.) “Seizure of Goods and the Right to Inheritance in Angola“

  • Four participants are from now on responsible for the elaboration of script-writing concerning future UCF video productions
  • Five participants have agreed to dedicate their skills for creating the editing-team of the UCF media unit.
  • These videos have in 2016/17 become an integral part of UCFs public screening activities and are shown primarily within schools and partnering churches
