PROJECT HEPA – ORAL TESTIMONY 2007-2009
HEPA is an abbreviation of Hetahetam-Po Ambara signifying "Proclaim what is in your heart". The project recorded oral testimonies from local communities in Androy and Anosy.
It produced 5 films, a book in three languages, and a range of web publications; the testimonies have been disseminated locally, nationally and internationally to increase the voice of local populations, and improve awareness about the knowledge and experience of indigenous people in southern Madagascar.

Two of the films made by the local beneficiaries under Project HEPA have since been shown at the Copenhagen Climate Change film festival 2009 to help debate around climate change adaptation and highlight issues for developing countries.
