uMphakatsi Peace Eco-Village was started in 2006 as a model to learn sustainability, eco-living, cooperation, and poverty alleviation.
This is a South African documentary story about a very phenomenal woman doing great work within her community in a deep rural area of the country.
The documentary will be shedding light on the wonderful environmental conservation efforts she has established through her healing centre (eco-village), by involving the local community members mostly affected by a changing landscape and neglected by government.
Where issues such as Gender Based Violence and Unemployment are rife among youth. She has however sought to bring healing within the community through her efforts that involve nature and indigenous knowledge systems.
Reaching my target will mean that the funds will be used to acquire and cover shooting, editing and travel expenses. Also part of the proceeds will go towards the eco-village and some of the programmes she has established.
This story will create awareness on the importance of citizen activism and the efforts made by women of the world. The meaningful impact that this documentary will have on the global scale is based on environmental and sustainable issues.
It is relevant because it speaks to the United Nations Sustainable Goals 2030 target; which talks about sustainable ways to co-exist with the planet whilst also addressing problems that are rife in the world e.g Poverty.
This documentary will shed a light on how women have always played a healing role and have come to the front when the world is in need. African women such as the late Environmental Conservationist and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Wangari Maathai. The Kenyan woman who planted 1 million trees when she saw the impact of climate change in her community. It is a celebration of women.
The funds will be used to acquire and cover shooting, editing and travel expenses. The remainder of the proceeds will go towards some of the programmes she has established and the work she does with children and youth.
