"Working for the benefit of the people of Africa to restore to them the right to a sense of self worth and a life of hope, health and happiness through programs that educate, promote healthy communities and help eliminate the stigma of illness."
This is the mission of Gede Foundation and served as our guiding principle in bringing to life their story.
Honored with a 2010 Communicator Award, "A Story of Hope" is a documentary focused on telling the stories of success through the voices of the staff and partner organizations as well as the patients and children Gede Foundation touches each and every day in Nigeria.
This film was one component of a much larger campaign to reposition the Foundation and seek additional funding in both Africa and here in the United States. We felt the most effective way to tell their story was to make the faces of those involved the center point of the entire campaign. In video, in print and online, we wanted people to listen and read these remarkable stories of success. From the doctors and staff that are in tears as they tell us about the hundreds of people they help at a free clinic on a Saturday afternoon to kids like Henry and Zakariya, who have been given a second chance to succeed because of Gede.
