Global Empowerment Theatre - Dr. Jennifer Holmes

During a workshop performance by the students of Global Empowerment Theatre, the blazing sun illuminates the scene written by and starring a seventeen-year old Tanzanian girl named Gift. The scene is about a young wife who is planting, picking and cooking rice for her husband. The wife repeatedly asks her husband for help but, each time he replies that he is too tired to help. When the wife's work is done, her husband asks, "My wife, is the rice ready?" All eyes turn to the young girl, Gift, playing the wife. Her face lights up, her voice rings out loud and powerful, and she points her finger defiantly at the boy playing her husband. "You did not help me to plant the rice; you did not help me to pick the rice; you did not help me to cook the rice, so I am going to eat alone. But you are still my husband."

Cheering, the students and teachers in the audience leap to their feet. Gift, a young student who appeared to most of her teachers as shy and quiet, now radiates confidence. Her written words and her voice have been heard.
