“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” –Nelson Mandela
Limited Resource Teacher Training has invited Nomoi Design to film and document their upcoming education program that will be launched in Guyana. Their program works by enhancing the quality of teaching and leadership in the community to provide a greater lasting impact on children and community members. The organization recruits and trains teachers throughout the world, including the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and the USA before taking them to work with their partner organizations in low-income countries like Guyana. Their mission is to fill the gaps in global understanding about innovative education programs that strive to increase access for children. GUYANA Guyana–this is where the magic happens. I will be alongside LRTT traveling with a group of teachers from the United Kingdom to one of the amazing destinations Guyana this summer. During my time with them, I will be documenting the LRTT program at work, in schools as well as teacher training sessions on video. In addition, I will be speaking directly with the children in Guyana that will be greatly impacted by the education brought to them by teachers and volunteers. I will also be taking some time to document the local community in Guyana, exploring the environment, and capturing the action of the project first hand. THE PURPOSE The video is vital to attracting the teachers and funders to the program, so much so that LRTT depends on it to operate successfully. Limited Resource Teacher Training’s mission is to expand its capacity year after year, spreading their impact and changing the global landscape of teaching quality in limited-resource classrooms. For this to happen, LRTT needs a way to show their impact first-hand by documenting exactly what they are doing and the impact they are having on children’s lives. In the process of filmmaking, I will be able to bring these real-world issues that need attention to an audience. Filming their journey this summer will be vital to the success of the LRTT project for years to come.
