Two nations, racked by war and poverty, are weaning themselves off foreign food aid and feeding their school children using locally grown food and providing a living to local farmers.

Every country in the world feeds its schoolchildren.

Many of the poorest countries in the world rely on western donors to provide their food for school children. But some of the very poorest countries are turning the whole thing on its head. As some of the world’s intense wars, terrorist occupations, even famines carry on about them – two desperately poor African nations are feeding their own school children, using food grown locally, by local farmers. It not only feeds children, but it provides a way of life for small farmers who can’t compete with free food from oversees.

Feeding Africa’s Children is the story of how low income countries have taken control of feeding their school children. How children who eat enough, learn better. And, how improved learning reduces poverty. Beautifully filmed in Kenya’s western lake regions and Mali’s war-torn north, Feeding Africa’s Children also features never before seen footage of the remote city of Timbuktu – proving that home-grown school feeding can work anywhere, and put the world’s poorest nations in control of their children – and their future.

I’ll Have It My Way with Hattie Bryant

I'll Have It My Way with Hattie Bryant

“The medicalization of American life from birth to death is killing our souls.”

– Hattie Bryant

As much as we all want to believe we can live forever, we all know deep down that it simply can’t be true.

From this program viewers learn that there are things each of us can do to live fully, all the way to the end. Anyone who is willing to take four simple steps now, while healthy, can minimize if not avoid entirely, the pain, suffering, confusion and disagreements that can arise when end-of-life healthcare wishes are not clearly spelled out.

Americans need this information because 70% say they want to die peacefully surrounded by friends and family … while actually 70% are dying in institutions surrounded by strangers.

Few people choose to contemplate critical illness or the inevitability of death until their time comes. Because possibilities are rarely discussed, many people are unprepared or unable to make critical end-of-life decisions and spend their last days in over-medicalized and unnecessarily painful and protracted situations.

Breaking through the taboo of discussing death, Hattie Bryant shows that we have choices.
