Documentary in Malawi

$580 of $2,500 goal

Raised by 15 people in 67 months
Hello friends and family,

This summer I will have the opportunity to travel to Africa as  part of a volunteer team that will be making a documentary on a silent crisis affecting the children of Malawi. 

It is estimated that a million children have been orphaned in Malawi, Africa, forcing many of them live on the streets.  Most of their parents have died of AIDS or are unable to support them. Girls are often preyed upon sexually by men and often give themselves to prostitution at an early age in order to make money. 

This film will bring light to what is going on in Malawi and hopefully incite others to become more involved. The long term goal is to build enough homes on the Youth Care property to house the most at-risk and destitute children currently on the streets of Lilongwe, Malawi.

To Learn more about the children...

The money I raise will go toward airfare, vaccinations and other travel related expenses while I am there (July 22nd - Aug 22nd). All donations will be greatly appreciated no matter what the dollar amount. 

I am reaching out for your support as I embark upon the next chapter of my life as a filmmaker. Whether it is monetary or just friendly words of encouragement, I am truly grateful for knowing each and everyone of you.

With love,

Shanda
