In the small village of Andasibe in eastern Madagascar, a nation where less than ten percent of native forests remain, a dedicated group of individuals are working together to halt the destruction of the natural environment through a combination of education, conservation, and community spirit.

Filmed in Malawi, this short documentary spotlights two British women who relocated to the country and set up myriad community outreach programs including a nursery and primary school for local children, nutritional assistance programs for people infected with HIV, and a center for people with disabilities, among many others.

Help Us Reach Our Goal

We need to raise finishing funds to carry this project to the end of post-production through the film festival circuit and finally up to distribution.  

We need to raise $6,000 to complete this project.

Support would be used towards producer fees, a finishing editor, color and audio correction, and original music composition.  Please help us get this important film to global audiences by making a 100% tax-deductible donation through our fiscal sponsor, New York Women in Film and Television.

NDZOU CAMP

Filmed in Mozambique, a nation ravaged by deforestation and constant warfare, Ndzou Camp tells the story of a small community determined to protect their elephant population and conserve their natural resources while pursuing tourism as a means of a more sustainable future. 

Ruboni Community Camp is a cooperatively owned lodge in Uganda, which is used as a base camp for hiking the Rwenzori Mountains, famously called the Mountains of the Moon.  Proceeds from the camp go directly to the community, helping to pay school fees for local children, buying back land for reforestation adjacent to Rwenzori National Park, and providing classes to the community on sustainable agriculture.

tropical andean forests

The forests of the tropical Andes probably hold more species than any other bio-region on earth and are considered the "global epicenter of biodiversity."  Steep, varied, and rugged terrain create myriad micro-climates high in endemism.  Steep slopes and inaccessibility have also hampered human encroachment in comparison to other areas of our planet, but human population pressure is increasing along with the duel threat of climate change.  In the winter of 2015, we visited conservation areas around Ecuador and are currently working with scientists and conservationists to document several innovative projects.

Sumatra and Kalimantan contain around half the world’s peat swamp forests.  These forests contain some of the largest reserves of near-surface carbon, much more than other forests, and will play a vital role in the earth’s future capabilities to sequester carbon.  Locally they regulate water flow and moderate flooding.  They are threatened by oil palm production, logging, and fire.  Little studied until recently, they contain the largest populations of orangutan and agile gibbons as well as some of the world’s last remaining tigers, Indian elephants, and Sumatran rhinos.  These animals play important roles in the forest’s proliferation.  Eyes of the World Films will be traveling to Indonesia to learn why these forests are so important and what is being done to protect them.
