|In the spring of 2012, a Bay Path faculty member and a BPC graduate student (born and raised in The Gambia) took 13 undergraduate students on a journey back to her village in one of the poorest nations on Earth. On the surface, their mission was to try to make a difference in the lives of 300 students at a small, struggling village school. Beneath the surface was the deeper aim of discovering if perhaps some of the greatest riches of the earth might in fact be found in the poorest of places. |
This 45-minute film documents a journey of hearts and minds. The Bay Path students took valuable material gifts of books, lesson plans, and medical supplies to the children of Africa. They returned with invaluable gifts of the heart and spirit that the children gave to them in return, gifts like hope, perseverance in the face of incredible odds, understanding, and love.
The film will be followed by a panel presentation featuring 13 young Americans who had the courage to leave homes and families to try to make the world a better place.
