Mako-Mere: making friends in Uganda
Mako-Mere (making friends) is a modern Ugandan soap opera designed to carry key development messages. Shot on location in the Eastern province of Tororo, the series follows the lives of a group of Ugandans, including a family, a drinker, a priest and a corrupt village elder, as they struggle to get ahead. We provided camera equipment and training to local crews during the shoot. The project was conceived and run by the charity Mifumi, which has offices in Bristol and Uganda.
