On behalf of Africa Youth for peace and development, we want to thank you for your support for our film Project for Street Children. We were able to do many things that are geared towards realizing the goal of the project below you will see
the various activities
The organization through fundraising activities was able to get 2 cameras cannon legria that was donated by supporters of the organization. Mr. Emmanuel Tucker a Sierra Leonean based in London United Kingdom. With these cameras, we have been able to hold training 2 times a week for children that have an interest. Some of the first selected children have been relocated for one reason or the other cannot be found. Most have them have moved to other parts of the city and this makes it difficult for them to be part of the program. A total of 25 Children have been trained since the start of the project. Most of them can now understand the different areas of filming (Light, camera, sound, background setting, makeup, and editing) we believe that we should give participants full details of all areas but taking it by stages. Currently, most of the children are doing Light and Camera and a better understating these topics. We anticipate that in the next 2-3 months they will be able to move on to the next 2 stages of the projects which are background setup and makeup.
Our next step
We hope to provide more cameras and other filming equipment’s as for now we have 2 cameras and one Laptop and very few editing software. We hope we are able to raise funds here to get additional equipment’s
Provide feeding opportunities for participants as most of them cannot provide for themselves and they tend to skip class because of no food.
Increase the number of participants to 50 and also get the old participants to advance to new activities and get new participants to be trained by old participants.
uch for your support and interest in our Film Project.
Currently, we have been able to use some of the funds to commence the training program in Sierra Leone and Uganda. While also working out a way to get the other 2 countries started.
In Sierra Leone, we have been able to train 40 boys and girls while in Uganda we have a team of 22 players already in the program.
The organization is currently working a partnership with Hockey Dream Foundation in Uganda and they are helping the organization with the training of our project leaders in Uganda.
In Cameroon and Kenya, things have been relatively slow as we do not have the requested funds to provide the pieces of equipment to them. we will include the country teams once we have additional funds and see how best they could also take part in the campaign and raise funds for the project.
