Trigger Drama:: “A play on gender equality”

Well… I’m still waiting for the placement to end then start a marathon of updates on my ICS journey. But this one couldn’t wait.

I was given the chance by my lovely teammates to write a play on gender equality for our out of school youths which was performed on Monday 15th of July 2019… The group was so creative and added a few of their lines when performing. But here is the original play which I wrote.. I hope you enjoy.

Community perceptions”

-Men are considered as the head of the family, in charge of running the family and decision makers in every situations.

– women are only meant to take care of children and do house work like cooking.

“My main objective for the drama was to change community perceptions and advocate for gender equality for all.

My story…”

The story is about a husband and wife and their children tackling the above mentioned issues.

The Play…”


Morning- family gather at home and husband leaves for work.. The pregnant wife and 3 children remains at home to do house work. (2 girls and 1 boy)

Husband::. My wife and children, I am going for work now. See you later.
