What is THE MOUNT HOPE PROJECT?
A positive change has already affected the actors of THE MOUNTAIN THIEF directly when we created THE MOUNT HOPE PROJECT. This effort was initially intended to raise funds for the two children in the film who needed immediate medical help and to help us finish the film. People responded to our call, we accomplished both and we have included it in the epilogue of the film.
The story is ongoing and
THE MOUNTAIN THIEF had a very successful film festival run, winning awards and numerous film festival selections. We are now setting up teh following:
1. THE MOUNT HOPE PROJECT LIVELIHOOD, a cooperative organization and program for the actors. They will be making T-shirt for the supporters of the film. We are exploring other products as well.
2. THE MOUNT HOPE PROJECT SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM- We are currently developing a partnership with an organization to help us send thee children of the scavenger-actors to school. We hope to start sending them by 2012. More details about this. The positive impact of this to the lives of our actors will be very significant.
3. MOUNT HOPE PROJECT DOCUMENTARY , to show people our journey in trying to affect change. We are also pursuing to use this MOUNT HOPE PROJECT, as a model in different parts of the world that is also in need of awareness and a direct impact.
