The Nobelity Project
This presentation features a screening of the award-winning documentary Building Hope in addition to one of the Nobelity Project’s short films. Nobelity Project founders and filmmakers Turk & Christy Pipkin will follow the films with a Q&A and a live stream, Skype call, with students in Kenya. Austin 6th graders will have the opportunity to ask questions in real time and experience global bridge-building for themselves as we explore the importance of education for all.
More about Building Hope: Through challenges and triumphs, Building Hope chronicles the construction of Mahiga Hope High, the first high school for this remote African community, and the connection between a thousand people in the U.S. and an African community working to create a better future for their children.
The Nobelity Project, founded by Turk and Christy Pipkin, is a non-profit organization seeking solutions to global problems through education and action. Advocating for basic rights of children everywhere, they have a special focus on enabling rural Kenyan communities to fill the gaps in educational infrastructure so their children can see a brighter future.
