About this project

“At The Heart Of It” is a film project intended to document the plight of the orphanage situation in Africa, to explore the human bonds created through personal attention and interaction, and to show the mutual impact of this experience on both the orphans and volunteers.

This summer, I will be traveling to multiple orphanages in Ghana, Sierra Leone, and Uganda with Worldwide Orphanage Relief Corporation (W.O.R.C.). In addition to filming, I will be volunteering so as to better understand the personal connections built through this program.

This documentary will chronicle the the lives of the children at these different orphanages, the work of the volunteers, the betterment of life situations and the steps W.O.R.C is taking to further their reach. It will illuminate a world that many people do not see in their daily lives and raise awareness of the ongoing needs of these millions of orphans.

Your funds will be used for travel expenses (airfare, room and board), fees associated with the volunteer program, associated media costs (drives, memory cards, file transfer, and the like), and beginning post-production costs.

*If you don't know how KickStarter works, it's an all or nothing program. Meaning, I can raise more than the goal but not less.
