Production of Short Film for MWAUWASA – Mwanza Tanzania

Kilimanjaro Film Institute (KFI) has been documenting Mwanza Urban Water Supply (MWAUWASA) activities since we partnered with the Dutch based organization called DUNEA. Early September, the KFI Film crew departed to Mwanza to start the shooting and collection of data for the film that will be used in the forthcoming training workshop in October 2014. This was another great experience for KFI crew apart from their normal assignments which opened new perspectives for learning through finding characters and explaining to them the mission of the documentary.

Customer care is one of the biggest challenges in most of governmentorganizations and this October 2014, DUNEA will be conducting a training workshop for MWAUWASA staff. Since the training will be participatory, DUNEA commissioned the Kilimanjaro Film Institute to create different case studies in the form of short films that will open up the discussion during the workshop.

“I was inspired by MWAUWASA staff for their dedication and work ethics. One guy actually told me how much he loves his job as a meter reader doing a most challenging job whereby sometimes people chase him not to get in their premises to read the meters, but he is committed to his job and love it because he feel valued by his office” Abisae Maeda

We are thankful to everyone who made our mission possible, from the dedicated employees at MWAUWASA, DUNEA, the community members etc. In case you have any project you want documented (Film & Pictures) don’t hesitate to contact us, we will be glad to offer you quality service at affordable rates.
