More than half of the world lives in cities, so the Global Lives Project chose to film five urban and five rural people.
The Global Lives project set out to document 24 hours in the daily life of ten everyday people from around the world who roughly represent the diversity of humanity. The goal was to create a dialogue about people's societal differences, as well as their common human experiences.
One of the people they filmed was Edith Kaphuka, a 13-year-old student at Domasi Mission Primary School in Zomba District, Malawi. The oldest of four girls, Edith has many responsibilities at her home in Ngwale Village, such as fetching water, cleaning the dishes, and gardening. Her little sister, Memory, is her best friend - when the two are together, they are nearly inseparable. While Edith and her family are Yao, they more readily speak Chichewa, Malawi's national language.
