Drop of Life documentary screening

The Student Social Work Organization sponsored a documentary about the impact of clean water on villages in Kenya.

The Student Social Work Organization (SSWO) successfully sponsored a Drop of Life documentary screening event on January 30, 2018, in Alumni Theater at Hill Student Center. It was cosponsored with INTO UAB and Institute for Human Rights (IHR) to show a documentary produced by With My Own Two Hands. The documentary examines the impact of clean water on villages in Kenya, showing how water in a rural community transformed a girl’s life from the slums of Kibera. After the film, there was Q&A time with the producers of the film, including a conversation with Lindsey Plumier, the CEO of With My Own Two Hands.

Dr. Stacy Moak was instrumental in making this event possible. She is taking a group of students to Kenya during spring break; for more information about this trip, please contact her at stacym@uab.edu.

There were about 50 attendees, including students, their parents, and faculty. SSWO sold hand-made jewelry and concessions and raised about $300 dollars ($30,500 in Kenyan shillings)! Prizes such as gift cards, t-shirts, and stuffed dragons were given to selected attendees at the event. Download the event flyer (pdf).
