Second-year Television & Video Production students Mariam Demian and Andrea Gilbert are producing a documentary in Cairo, Egypt on orphans and the Egyptian adoption system this February/March.
Thousands of children live in orphanages without ever leaving and even sometimes stay and work there because they have not received a good enough education to move ahead in life and adoption is not legal- therefore, there’s never even a chance of them having a real family. Your help will allow the organization to provide a clean, safe and nurturing environment for the kids, because for now, there is no other option.
Your support for this project would be so very appreciated! Partial proceeds will be donated to the Littlest Lamb Orphanage as they’ve so far been supportive in giving us interviews when we get there. Additional proceeds will go towards our project shedding light on this very important issue.
It’s a big project and it’s ambitious, but we’re working hard to make the most of this documentary because it’s a topic that needs attention!
Tickets are $10. Tickets will be available through Mariam and Andrea, as well as at the door between 7:30pm and 11pm.
