Educating the Children

Educating the Children is a charity set up to help support and improve the lives of girls and women in East Africa.
I began working with the organisation to help document the amazing work they do. This included visiting their project in, Sekenani Masai Mara, Narok county Kenya, visiting the boarding school they’d built (the first of it’s kind in the area). I spent a number of weeks collecting content, a mixture of stills and video to best show the impact they’ve had on the young womens lives, as well as their families and the local community. With the footage I produced a series of pieces showcasing their work and impact. 

My involvement then moved towards rebranding the charity, with a visual identity and website to eventually managing their social media and how they approached their fund raising campaigns. I looked after teams in Uganda to produce pieces for their “Code Queen” programme which aimed to get women work ready, teaching coding and soft skills to help them achieve higher levels of employment in the IT sector.

My work with ETC helped secure a feature on BBC News, leading to an 80%
increase in visibility on social media as well as a significant increase in repeat donors.
