Rajada Dalka - Nation's Hope

a film by Hana H Mire

RAJADA DALKA tells the story of a season in the life the Somali National Women’s Basketball team, a courageous group of young women who continue to play the game they love in the face of death threats from Al-Shabaab militants who believe that women should not take part in sport.


"What motivates me the most, apart from being Somali and wanting to bring up a bright side of the country, is the determination, commitment and dedication that these girls have...they’re eager to change the perception of their country and their belief, faith and perseverance in basketball gives them the chance to do that."

Director Hana H Mire.
