AKE participants are exploring, through a mythical fantasy story,  the important role women play in society. So far we know that there will be a super heroine called Hera, and that she is commited to, and loved by her people the Nangwe community. She will embark on a journey to challenge poverty, with the help of friends and mentors and will hopefully challenged us to understand what roles we have in making this a better and more just world.
