30 young girls from orphanages across Johannesburg took part in a digital arts workshop at the Pearson-sponsored Educational Media Centre at the University of Witwatersrand in South Africa. The girls were taught how to use digital cameras and videos and worked in groups to film stories about their own experiences. The workshop was based around UNICEF's Sara initiative which aims to deal with gender discrimination issues faced by girls growing up in Southern and Eastern Africa.
