Outer Shell Africa Communications OUTERSAC is a hybrid social enterprise. A Social Impact Entertainment SIE and Impact productions, Social Development, and Social Support services. Our primary goal is Psycho-social Wellness, Positive Body Image and to inspire a behavioral social change of Sub-Saharan Africans with Visible Differences, Disfigurements, and Appearance Alterations.

At our Physical Appearance Positivity Hub, we fully understand how difficult and debilitating it can be to live with visible disfigurement and appearance alterations in our present society where the mainstream media continually create unrealistic beauty standards through marketers and adverts. Those unrealistic beauty messages are hard enough for individuals with no disfigurements or alterations to imagine what individuals battling visible differences and appearance alterations go through physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially.

We are using the same mainstream media used to create the unrealistic beauty standards, ‘perfect’ flawless body, low self-esteem… to counter the false psychologically damaging messages, and in turn inspire, motivate positive ingenuity to build back positive body image, self-love and self-esteem through Social Impact Entertainment (SIE), Enterprising Impact Productions and Creative Discussions through different Support mediums like support groups, digital interventions, etc.
