ViewChange. org has launched an on line international film competition to find powerful new stories about the progress being made in achieving the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). These short videos will be used to raise awareness, inspire action, and accelerate the worldwide movement to reduce extreme poverty by 2015. Jacqueline came to me with a bag full of mini digital video tapes and we cobbled together a 5 minute film and entered the contest. The film depicts the construction of a well at Kwihala Village & a rainwater harvesting tank built at Isukamahela School. The villagers take ownership of the wells/tanks & sustain them, a key component for empowering them towards self-sufficiency. Many babies & children die of preventable diseases caused by contaminated water.
Thank you for your time with this, it really is a great thing that she is doing her and I am proud to participate… Would love it if you could return several times and vote for it over the next 2 weeks!
