GG FilmFest

There's another exciting event going on at GlobalGiving highlighting the Noon Meal Girl’s Education project supported by the Friends of Burkina Faso.

GG is currently hosting a FilmFest where people can vote for the video that makes them feel the most connected to an incredible grassroots development project. GG gathered raw footage (photos and video) from more than twenty high-impact projects around the world. Film makers used this footage to create compelling and interesting videos that tell the stories of these projects and the people who are helped by the work they do. Each video tells the story of a project from GG and will help to connect these amazing projects with the support they need. Votes will determine which videos do the best job of telling the project's story.

Please vote for the Noon Meal Girl's Education project video! Voting ends June 29th at 11:59pm. It is currently ranked 5th out of 13.
