Notes: Every day thousands of children have their education destroyed through deliberate attack; sexual exploitation, murder, kidnapping, military occupation.

Education Above All is trying to stop this.

They need the attention of world leaders, who don’t see the issue as a top priority.

We told the story of a single boy on his journey from school child to child soldier, and asked “If education is destroyed, what fills the void?” We knew the film's success rested solely on the soldiers of our boy, played by Azriel Abiloye.

The film was played by the UN Secretary General at the UN’s first ever ‘Day to Protect Education from Attack’ event, this is the beginning of a movement.
