Fun for a purpose: examples from Western Uganda (songs and roles plays)

Excitement and enthusiasm for change can help to counter strong social norms about how women and men should behave. Creative learning methods like songs, role plays, drama and theatre are part and parcel of the GALS methodology. These make it easier for people to connect and to overcome tension, and can help people to mobilise against inequality. Below you will find some examples of this from Western Uganda captured by Linda Mayoux.
