Heward Jue and I have the privilege to be rewarded the Creative Project Grant of $20,000 offered by Getty Images in 2013, benefiting Asante Africa Foundation based out of Oakland, California. The tagline of Asante Africa Foundation is "Educating Children | Transforming Worlds". Now entering its 7th year, the organization is witnessing how its work is profoundly transforming the lives of African children and their communities.
In July 2013, Heward and I spent 3 weeks in Kenya and Tanzania capturing footage of school children that were sponsored by the organization who had made incredible progress in their learning. This video depicts the parallel worlds of these children, contrasting the different paths of their lives if they were uneducated, or educated through Asante Africa's help.
