"Our Children Are Not Alone"
wins gold award
The Africa Resource Video "Our Children Are Not Alone"
won a Gold Award from Aurora Awards. The video presents a biblically
based plea for the Church to actively respond to the needs of the
many children affected and infected by HIV/AIDS. This Gold Award
is given to only the top 20% of videos submitted for consideration.
According to their website (www.auroraawards.com),
Aurora Awards is "An Independent Film and Video Competition
for Commercials, Cable programming, Documentaries, Industrial, Instructional
and Corporate Videos."
The Video was a joint project, funded by World Relief which has
its continental AIDS headquarters on the NEGST
Campus. The film was mostly shot in Rwanda, its place of first use,
and is translated into Kinyarwanda and Kirundi. It will be used
in conjunction with a training curriculum for orphan and vulnerable
child care program leaders, and is intended to be an awareness-raising
film that is very useful for church viewing since it is only 10
minutes long. A good use of the film is to follow the showing with
a discussion time, but it can simply be shown by itself.
"Our Children Are Not Alone" can be provided
in either DVD or VHS format at World
