    OMO CHILD rescues and cares for Mingi children located in the Omo River Valley region of Southwest Ethiopia, Africa. To date, OMO CHILD has successfully rescued 37 children that would otherwise be killed. Mingi is defined as being impure or cursed in certain African tribes in the Omo River Valley in Ethiopia, including the Kara and Hamar tribes. Unfortunately, these tribes participate in the tribal ritual of killing children that are declared Mingi. A child can be declared Mingi for the following reasons — Teeth Mingi, Girl Mingi, Woman Mingi and Twin Mingi. Being declared Mingi almost always means death of the child. The tribe will leave the child alone in the desert without food and water or will drown the child in the river. One of our goals at Omo Child is to stop the tribal practice of Mingi. We believe that we can achieve this by providing education and humanitarian support to the rescued children and their tribes.

        Pennipotens 2011 | 00:15:54 | HDV 1080p30 Out of spite, a mother repeatedly tries to kill her "beautiful" daughter, although her beloved “ugly” daughter secretly foils her attempts. The story is based on the Flemish fairytale "White Caroline and Black Caroline", recorded by Edmund Dulac in 1916. I am the single creator of the work, although seven UNC Charlotte student interns helped with file preparation, early animation tests and marketing materials.

            Visit beyondoffgrid.com for more videos and info. Historian and cultural analyst Geoffrey Botkin provides ten uncanny similiarities between modern America and the Roman Empire before its fall. What do these similiarities portend for the future of America? "Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness. When change is absolute there remains no being to improve and no direction is set for possible improvement: and when experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." -- George Santayana

She had the flamingo character prior to this shoot and thought it would be an interesting starting off point. We wanted the piece to be darker, in contrast with the bright pink costume. We shot in Uptown and Loring Park, where the title Kiddie Pool originates.
