Thanks to all the partners and contributors that have generously supported our efforts in Sierra Leone, a youth-focused workshop that began just over four years ago has blossomed into one of the most respected, professional, media collectives in the country. These efforts were made possible by the generous contributions and support from private donations, Spring 2012 Kickstarter Campaign, The Bertha Foundation, Creative Capital, Freedom to Create and a partnership forged with The Bay Area Video Coalition. Thank you!. We could not do it with out you.
