Stepping Up To The Challenge Of Covid 19. Making Public Awareness Video for Sierra Leone TV.Film!

It has been such a difficult time for a great many people around the world and Sierra Leone is no exception. When lockdown came millions of people faced uncertainty and hard times, hoping just tp make ends meet. Because of fewer opportunities to work and earn money, real hardship followed the Corona outbreak. BUT, I am greatly honoured and proud to say that The Marc Bolan SChool of Music and Film stepped up to the challenge!

Our students and teachers at The Marc Boaln School of Music and Film in Makeni, Sierra Leone, showed great initiative. They used their new skills and equipment  to create music and film videos as a PUBLIC AWARENESS strategy to warn their fellow Sierra Leonians about the dangers of Corona Virus - and how best to behave in order not to facilitate its spread. Our children, a great many of whom lost their parenst and families in the Ebola outbreak five years ago, know how lethal and tragic the consequences of this illness can be.

Working together, they wrote songs, choreographed dance (all in keeping with social distancing rules) and planned, directed and filmed their own videos to help reach out to every community in Sierra Leone. Their truly wonderful work has been constantly played on national television and radio stations. 

In the brand new video below you will see some of our youngest children presenting their heart-touching work - with great pride and conviction!  Each of the children worked very hard on their dance moves and singing, each child co-operating with the camera film team and directors. WE are so proud of their achievements!!!

As well as the above The Marc Bolan School of Music and Film has prepared meals for and fed over 1,500 students and their families in the local Makeni district because of the lack of earnings suffered by the community. Our President and inspiration, the great Motown singer and songwriter Gloria Jones, has done everything she possibly can to help our community survive.

Please continue to help us, we really are making a huge difference to people's lives and inspiring our children believe in the value of their creativity and interaction.

We ARE reaching out to the world!!!  PLEASE REACH OUT TO US to help us build the school by donating today!
