Malawi is ranked 174/188 on the UN gender inequality index.
When I asked the kids at the Jacaranda School for Orphans in Blantyre, Malawi if they wanted to try the cajon, several boys came right up, sat down and started playing. We kept looking at the girls and asking them to come and try. They would get shy, laugh and walk away. Then finally one brave little warrior took off her backpack and walked over to the cajon. She sat down and went for it. Her skirt fell over the cajon and she kept going. After this one girl stepped up and played, three girls quickly ran over to play the cajon. She made this happen. Her bravery made it ok for the other girls to feel good about trying too. I cried a lot after we left this orphanage, for so many reasons, but seeing this awesome girl create a wave of confidence in her sisters was one of them.

sharing the cajon with the beautiful kids at the Jacaranda School For Orphans has been one of my highlights of our time in Africa.

we stepped into the Malowa community and spent the day writing & performing together. these girls shared songs about keeping each other lifted, staying in school and requesting their parents not marry them so young. these girls are conscious and supportive. these girls are vibrant and engaged. these girls are the future of Malowa. #malowasecondaryschool #salima #malawi #exchangeourworld #culturaldiplomats
