A seven-minute excerpt from the film was included as part of an exhibit at the Smithsonian American Art Museum earlier this summer.
“Well of Dreams” is the inspiring story of Anne Okelo, a woman who is impacting a generation of young girls and women in Kenya. Okelo battled great odds to become the first girl in her village to graduate from high school.
She went on to earn a scholarship at the University of Nairobi, where she was one of just three girls in her graduating class. Through a series of events, Okelo obtained her post-graduate degree at West Chester University in West Chester, Pa.
While in the United States, she began to share her desire to help her community in Kenya, and her dream took wings as her passion to make a difference prompted a few individuals, a church, a university and a small town to band together and help her take the next big step.
