About Sɛbɛnni Ni Taama




Sɛbɛnni Ni Taama, means writing and travelling in Bambara

It is a media platform and a community with a mission to empower millennial women’s journeys through storytelling.

We believe that sharing our stories matter. It promotes self-awareness and self-knowledge. What’s more, personal intimate stories enable to inspire each other to take the necessary steps to thrive in our own lives. Telling our stories, hearing our voices, creating communities is a necessity in order to eventually create inclusivity.

Sɛbɛnni Ni Taama was created with sisterhood and storytelling in mind. We learn, share and raise awareness on a number of topics with one another.
