From Jersey, With Love

Two years ago, I traveled to Nigeria to do a short documentary on my friend Dena’s organization The Nigerian School Project.

With Dena, I visited the public schools she built on an island of 350,000 people that is not labeled on maps. It has no running water or electricity.

Now, we are growing the film, “From Jersey, With Love” into a full length doc.

In order to complete it, we plan to bring a crew to film the island’s first high school graduation in June.

Last summer, I stayed on the island to get to know the students, teachers and the community better. And, I had the privilege to co-teach the students with a young Nigerian woman who Dena had sponsored through college.

The community embraced us. And, the relationships I built In Nigeria are a source of joy for me and an inspiration for the film.

In a couple of months we are going to start a Kickstarter (crowdfunding) campaign to fund the upcoming filming in Nigeria for the graduation and to capture stronger interview footage.

Please share our project, “From Jersey, With Love.”

Much Gratitude,

Kim
