#BringBackOurGirls Day 57
Out of Sight is not Out of Mind
Here’s presenting two recent works of media that seek to bring attention to the facts and the reality of the abduction of the Chibok girls of Nigeria by Boko Haram. The first is a docu-short put together by David Adeogun of GlassVisuals for the Merry Hearts Foundation; a 7 minute piece about “Girls, Education, Nigerian reform, and the urgency and necessity of bringing these girls back”. The second is a music video by Ayoola in collaboration with other Nigerian artistes.
Empowering Youths in Africa
Founded by Bunmi Babajide, Merry Hearts Foundation is a non-profit organization committed and dedicated to encouraging and helping youths and children to reach their full potential through education.The Merry Hearts Scholarship Fund is an initiative of The Merry Hearts Foundation (MHF) Inc.
The Merry Hearts Scholarship Fund’s main objective is to provide financial assistance in the form of a scholarship to students in need, while promoting an environment of encouragement to let the students know and understand that they are of value not only to their family and school, but to their nation and the global arena.On a daily basis, due to lack of education, too many of our talented youths are being denied a chance to achieve their dreams.

David Adeogun of Glass Visuals, a London based filmmaker whose work I have become familiar with over time compiled, produced, and edited the piece. He says:
“This issue is very serious… Every second, every sign, every yell, every action, is needed. Everyone working together is actually a sign of unity and focus. We want this piece to be global. We want it to go beyond us. We want this video to be played on a speaker in front of GoodLuck Jonathan’s mansion. We want it to roar on the computers & screens of every wifi handler in Lagos, Abuja, Victoria Island, the village- Every place, e.v.e.r.y.w.h.e.r.e.! We want Boko Haram and every organization that has limited Africa to be fed up and gutted by the cries of the people world wide. United we can send even more chills down the spines of every man and woman until something is done”
Ayoola, a Nigerian Artist who won MTN Project Fame West Africa (Season 5) also recently released a song collaboration (with other notable Nigerian Artistes) for the #BBOG cause
