J1012N Geraldine Roche Drama
The Geraldine Roche Drama Project is an innovative program launched in Bulawayo in 2014 by Geraldine Roche of Australia. The drama program is a Sally Foundation (Geraldine is Co-founder) initiative developed following a drama performance in one of the Sally Foundation Bulawayo Community Gardens. It was established as a tool to reach into the community to both educate people on social issues and provide entertainment. The program is based in Bulawayo and will ultimately be expanded to throughout Zimbabwe.
- Use the medium of drama and film production to deliver messages and education on various subjects of social advocacy so as to better inform the community on a broad range of issues including their rights, health practices, gender respect, HIV/Aids and topics such as expected actions and behavior of a local councillor. The program operates on two levels – simultaneously educating and informing communities as well as developing the talent and aspirations of young people.
- The project will be used as an advocacy tool which utilises entertainment as a communication tool reaching out to the broader public – mainly encompassing the youth of Zimbabwe as well as key public figures such as councillors, chiefs and other forms of community leadership.
- In the process, it is a program goal that youth benefit from skills training and develop capacity for income generation through the arts.
