In January 2008 ten year-old Logan MacGillivray saw pictures of the hardships children face in Northern Provence, Sierra Leone-schools with no chairs, no desks, no recreational equipment, few books, and roofing that could not keep the rain away.
He felt he should do something.
With guidance from the Centre for Development and Peace Education (cdpeace) he spearheaded sending a 40 foot shipping container filled with educational, building and recreational materials to refurbish seven schools and build a community resource centre for students and teachers at the cdpeace headquarters at Mayagba, Sierra Leone.
He wanted to create awareness of Sierra Leone by making a documentary/music video so others could see that they need help at this time. Theme song for the documentary is written and performed by Terry Kelly.
All proceeds from the sale of the Listen To The Children videos after costs for duplication and shipping will be used to help construct a community resource centre for students and teachers at the cdpeace headquarters at Mayagba, Sierra Leone.
Amongst other good things, the resource centre will assist in the training of local teachers and the coordination of getting school supplies to local schools.
Videos at $20 each can be ordered by visiting Logan’s website at: www.listentothechildren.net.
If you or your school would like to help out with the next container or in any other way please let Logan know.
