Bobbie still has a special admiration for acting, which is why she focused on stage directing during her studies. After completing her studies, she worked as a casting director, actress and assistant director for the movie 'Layla M.' by Mijke de Jong. She was intensely involved in the casting and research process and prepared the rehearsals with regards to content. Therefore, she worked closely with Mijke and the actors Ilias Addab and Nora El Koussour for one and a half years. Afterwards, Bobbie worked as a casting director at Oi Mundo Casting. In September 2016, she made the short film 'TAMU', which was selected for the debut competition of the Netherlands Film Festival in 2017 and for the 14+ competition at the KUKI film festival in Berlin.

She was also able to send for her three daughters to live with her in France. In the same year Milouda attended literacy courses where she encountered theatre and poetry slam for the first time. From 2008 to 2010 she appeared on stage herself as a poetry slammer in small theatres in Paris. In subsequent years she developed her own works and staging. Her slams are full of the optimism of freedom, love and personal dreams. By telling her her own life story, she helps and strengthens women in defending themselves against domestic violence and opening their lives to new possibilities. She received the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres from the French Cultural Ministry in July, 2012, for her life’s work and extraordinary creativity.

Rakieta Poyga was born in 1960 in Ouahigouya, Burkina Faso. From 1984 to 1994, her study of economics brought her to Germany, in the former GDR. The excruciating pain and complications Rakieta experienced during the birth of her first child due to her circumcision, led her to ground the organization “Association Bangr Nooma” which means “There is nothing better than knowledge”, in 1998. Central to Bangr Nooma’s work are the campaigns to educate and convince people in the rural villages and the poor suburban neighborhoods of the capital Ouagadougou against Female Genital Mutilation (FGM). In Burkina Faso, more than 76% of the girls and women are affected by FGM. One focus of the organization lies in the training and education of local influential people, who function as multipliers. This includes village and religious leaders, teachers, police, representatives from women’s organizations, traditional midwives, and most importantly, former circumcisers.
Poyga’s organization has been supported by TERRE DES FEMMES since its inception. Additionally, for over 20 years, Rakieta Poyga has been active with the GIZ (the Germany Society for International Cooperation), where she, among other things, leads a project for integrated forest management in Burkina Faso.
