Documentary "A light in the dark"

This Saturday November 20 on TVE 2 within the program "Thematic Night" (starting at 11pm in Spain, duration: 55min) the documentary co-financed by the SIMON DEVELOPMENT FOUNDATION will be broadcast, entitled A LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS, which tells the true story of Marta Borrell, who at the age of 14 undertook a trip to rural Mozambique with the objective of understanding how to improve education in the most disadvantaged countries. After his exciting adventure, and with the firm intention of contributing his grain of sand, he was able to present the conclusions of his study in front of the UN, on January 24, 2020, International Education Day.

In this documentary from the production company Góndola Films, the problem of education in developing countries is analyzed in depth from the perspective of children. It has contributions from experts such as Federico Mayor Zaragoza, former director general of UNESCO; Ndaba Mandela, president of the Africa Rising Foundation; Jaime Saavedra, director of the Education Department of the World Bank, Luis Álvarez, president of the IBO Foundation, Montserrat del Pozo, Superior General of the Missionary Daughters of the Holy Family of Nazareth.

We want to make the documentary reach all the people involved in some way, both with the educational system and with aid to developing countries.
