Girls Like Us

Directed by: Dallas Golden | Produced by: Hailey Sprinkel | Documentary | 2017 | Tanzania/USA



In Tanzania, the expectations for what women should do are apparent. They are expected to stay home, cook, clean, and take care of the children while their husbands are away at work. Like a typical teenager, Winnie needed an outlet for her curious mind. In 2013, She joined Apps & Girls, an organization that teaches young girls how to code their own websites, and Carolyne Ekyarisiima, the founder of Apps & Girls, became her mentor. Now, because of the program and Carolyne’s mentorship, Winnie has started her own NGO, has become the mentor to countless young women in Tanzania and is on her way to the prestigious African Leadership Academy in South Africa with dreams of becoming a computer scientist.
