In one word? Brilliant. This video – possibly the largest lipdub ever made in Africa – features nearly 500 Ugandan women dancing to “Price Tag” by ONE supporter and global superstar Jessie J. The video was created by SYPO, a Netherlands-based microlending NGO, to show the world how small business loans have helped impact their lives.

We love that these women are using music to bring the community together and get their message out. They give a whole new meaning to Jessie J’s song lyrics “We don’t need your money, money, money/ We just wanna make the world dance – forget about the price tag.” Watch now to see what I mean:
