Cards of Hope
Our film focuses on a community organization in Cebu City, Philippines called Alay Kapwa. The members live in Cebu City's poorest slums but work together to generate income, provide early education programs for children, and support those most in need in the community. In their most recent initiative, the members make and sell greeting cards to fund a high school and college scholarship program. The film follows one of the scholarship recipients in her walk to school and the card making process, from its roots to the final sale here in Austin, Texas.
