CARING FOR THE WORLD FILMS

aka Caring For The World Films   |   Dallas, TX   |  http://www.caringfortheworldfilms.org/

Mission

To provide humanitarian and other charitable organizations with
tools that enable them to increase awareness for their cause, expand their volunteer base, improve their marketing efforts and ultimately raise the level of donations.

Notes from the nonprofit

It is extremely difficult to find a small non profit which meets our sustainability criteria and is willing to be 100% transparent. It takes months to fully vet an organization. We do not rush our projects. Sometimes it will take multiple trips to fully document the mission.
Our board of directors will be making a final decision for our next project by Jan 2015.

Population(s) Served

Documenting grass roots effort by human rights organization in Uganda EDJA to educate rural village on human rights to overcome rape culture. This project is a long term effort resulting from the rape of children in the village by men who go unpunished. It was realized the village population accepted this behaviour as "life" not realising they had options to stop it. EDJA began training local women to educate law enforcement, educators and village elders, leaders on their human rights guaranteed by the Ugandan government and United Nations.The first workshop was held in the village of Nyakagyezi in January 2017. CFTWF Producer Debi Lang was present to observe (not shoot) along with human rights lawyers and board members of Nyaka AIDS Orphans Project. This documentary project, as mentioned is to long term research documentary project which could take years to produce and will be used to determine if this approach is viable in stopping the rape culture in rural Uganda. The goal is to utilize the film to share the approach with other NGOS and the government of Uganda to protect children and women.
