All proceeds from the Event will be collected by PCI-Media Impact (www.mediaimpact.org) and put towards Mobilize4Africa; an Entertainment-Education serial drama designed to foster and empower women within their community. The serial drama will air twice a week for one year via mobile phone, internet and radio platforms to educate, influence, and create social change to help put an end to violence against women. These combined methodologies will be run with our on-the-ground partners in Liberia and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
