Generation Hope - Cannes Film Festival Short Film Corner 2016

Inspired by the bestselling book, The Shed That Fed A Million Children

Millions of children around the world will never have the chance to fulfill their potential. Hungry and out of school, they miss out on the opportunity to learn, play and work towards a better future. Mary’s Meals is an organization doing everything possible to change that – providing more than one million of the world’s poorest children with a meal every day they attend school.

In this powerful and uplifting film, we meet just some of the young people who have already experienced the extraordinary difference a daily meal and an education can make. They’re part of a new generation, once fed by Mary’s Meals, which is beginning to find its voice. These young people can become the men and women who will lift their communities out of poverty and end their reliance on aid. They are Generation Hope.
