MOVIE Online!

Hello everyone,

Finally, the Peace Corps, SeneGAD and Peace Only Productions film, Elle Travaille, Elle Vit! (She Works, She Lives!) Check out the whole video at

This is the film I've been working to promote in Dakar that USAID/PAEM has picked up and I held a screening at the US embassy for. (I worked on the subtitles and am now in charge of its distribution in Senegal).

The other film we just finished, Tree Nurseries in the Sahel, should be uploaded sometime next week. Though that one does not have subtitles, the art and music are still fantastic!

Enjoy! And please, let me know what you all think and if you have any ideas about people who might be interested in obtaining a copy or showing it. And spread the link around! We want to maximize coverage.

Holly's Cause


Hello all!
So as many of you know, I have a Peace Corps Partnership project going right now to build two classrooms for the school in my village. I'm trying to finish raising funds by the beginning of November so we can start construction as soon as the rainy season is over. The project is a great cause, and every penny donated will go towards helping the students of Cour Bambey to be able to take pride in their school.
To donate, visit Please please please, forward this to any family and friends you think might be interested in donating.
For more information about the project or my village, feel free to email me at
Thanks so much!
Holly Packard
