GoodMakers Films – Our Sister Company
We love to be part of great projects aiming to make a difference globally. In partnership with our sister company, GoodMakers films, we have worked hand in hand to not only fulfill but amplify projects.
Rift Valley Childrens Village. Founded by India Howell, the Rift Valley Childrens Village is designed to improve the lives of marginalized children in Tanzania. This orphanage is like no other, and also develops programs designed to strengthen the community and assist marginalized children from the Karatu District. As of June 2009, the Children’s Village is now a home to 69 children.
The Red Cross Kenya. We have worked with the Red Cross on many projects before with out ‘GoodMakersFilms’ projects with ‘Kenyans For Kenya’ and the successful ‘Chagua Peace’ campaign. So when we were approached to create an uplifting TVC we were honoured to be asked to do so. So many well known faces pitched in to help, it was filmed over a week travelling to different places where the Red Cross has projects.
Womens Global Empowerment Fund provides critical loans, education and resources to women in post-conflict northern Uganda who are rebuilding their lives after horrific ordeals. WGEF sought GoodMakers assistance with helping to get the word out to a wider audience, and asked if we could film the annual drama festival in Kampala, Uganda.
FAME Africa. Dr Frank – The Bush Doctor. Founded by Dr Frank Artress & his wife Susan Gustafson. Former California based Dr Frank Artress found his purpose after a nearly fatal climb on Kilimanjaro prompted him to sell everything and dedicate himself to healing the poor, often in remote areas of the African bush in Tanzania. His nonprofit FAME Africa, is has built a medical clinic, mobile medical clinic and has now build a fully funcitoning hospital.
Project Zawadi ‘Adam’s Story’ tells the inspiring and courageous story of Project Zawadi’s first graduating student who nearly died of infectious diseases as a young boy and instead, was rescued by Project Zawadi who placed Adam in a village family and provided him with an education. Adam is now attending law school.
‘It’s not where you started but how you finish it that counts.’ We dedicate a portion of each project to our non-profit sister company ‘GoodMakers Films’, to help create impact and awareness for NGO’s working within the region.
