FILMS BYKIDS - Fire In Our Hearts (India)
Like most girls from rural India, 16-year-old Jayshree Janu Kharpade never expected to get an education. Instead, she had to work to help support her family. But union organizers were determined that girls from poor tribal villages have a better future and built a school. Film mentor, Joyce Chopra, a pioneer of documentary film, helped Jayshree share her journey from illiterate laborer, to scholar and young activist - in this powerful story that illuminates the social and economic potential of educating girls in the developing world.
