These images were filmed entirely by the students in Sinthiou Mbadane and Mbour. The narrations are their own words and voices.

Aldiouma Dia must convince local parents to send their children to school.

These stories inspired the internationally-acclaimed feature film TALL AS THE BAOBAB TREEThe movie comes with free educational materials correlated directly to the CCSS curricula standards for Gr 8-12, plus guided discussions for community groups and universities.
