Niyel screens 9 sanitation documentaries by african filmmakers at the first fsma short film festival in Ivory Coast 


ABIDJAN, Côte d’Ivoire 27 February 2022-/African Media Agency (AMA)/- Niyel, an international, impact-driven campaigns, advocacy and public affairs firm in Africa, has led a sanitation advocacy initiative since 2017 to persuade key decision makers from the national governments of Benin, Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Mali and Senegal, to prioritise sanitation challenges and adopt inclusive policies to increase access to and use of on-site sanitation.

A year ago, Niyel launched Clap Sanitation in collaboration with Burkinabè director, Apolline TRAORÉ. The initiative provided 10 young filmmakers between 18 and 35 from Burkina Faso, Benin, Côte d’Ivoire, Gabon, Madagascar, Togo and Senegal, with financial support and guidance on the different stages of audiovisual production to produce a short documentary with the theme “Tell us your sanitation story” – using their art as an advocacy tool in favour of better sanitation for all.
