Kilkenny To Kilimanjaro
Just got back from Tanzania. I'm going to start editing a documentary about the journey to the village of Uchira which is located on the side of Kilimanjaro. Money had been raised in Ireland and was given directly to the villagers with a village chairman present.
The money was raised by local schools and people of Kilkenny and also through the launch of a music cd which was made by Sheila Ryan a music teacher in the Presentation Seconday School.
All money raised went directly to the people of Uchira and all travel expenses were paid by those who travelled themselves.
The documentary will try to show the human nature of poverty with the peoples voices being translated from Swahaili to English.
