Grassroots Economics Foundation is excited to unveil "Mweria Revival," a Participatory Video created by local Kilifi and Kwale community members Kenya. This video, developed with the training and support of InsightShare, highlights the rich tradition of Mweria—a Rotating Labor Association practiced by the Mijikenda people and similar to customs seen in many indigenous cultures worldwide.

Mweria fosters mutual support and community solidarity, and this video beautifully showcases how the community has revived this ancestral practice. It depicts real-life scenes of communal farming, collective problem-solving, and the joyous spirit of working together, reaffirming that Mweria is not just a tradition but a vital part of their daily lives.
