About .


       THE SPIRIT OF A CHILD, an interactive documentary,
introduces Mama Laadi, who has spent the last two decades in the Upper East Region of Ghana caring for children from all walks of life, some stigmatized as "evil" or "witches." At times the children are abandoned or even executed when household or community members suffer death or illness. A street child herself, Mama vowed to support anyone who was in need of help regardless of their label or situation. However, due to recent circumstances Mama Laadi may be forced to close the children's home formerly known as Operation
Mango Tree, if sustainable funds are unable to be gained. THE SPIRIT OF A CHILD will follow  Mama Laadi and the children as stories unfold revealing the seeds of hope for a future nearly missed and the necessity for Mama Laadi’s Home to stay alive.

Share in a positive experience with an evening filled with heartfelt visuals and stories. 

This is the first hosted experience where you'll have access to view clips filmed for the project The Spirit of a Child. Although the film is still in process, this special night Louis Bryant will share clips of footage along with stories, music and even an auction in support of the film's completion. 

This is also an opportunity to meet director and filmmaker Louis Bryant III and learn about his experience in Ghana, his bonded connection with Mama Laadi and her children, the people involved, as well as the process for working on the film. 

The evening will be filed with fun, smiles, and warm hearts. Donations will be welcome!

We look forward to your attendance on this very special evening.
