How effective are foreign based charities in Africa? Is there an alternative to the top-down approach which has dominated the aid industry for decades? Earlier this year Sorious Samura and Storyhouse Films spent a month searching for answers by looking at the operations of an organisation called AfriKids in Ghana. The result is a documentary film that impacts not only on the local area, but on Africa as a whole. link
