‘The Gateway to Knowledge’ has been a year-long project of Alyssa McDonald that is finally starting to come to the end.
It explores literacy in Ghana’s rural areas and how a mobile library project has started delivering books to kids that would otherwise have no access.
I originally filmed the documentary when I was interning with Journalists for Human Rights in Takoradi, Ghana last summer. I have been working on developing the story since and am finally reaching the end of the line.
This is not the first time I have written about it. Please see other resources about the mobile library so you can have a taste of what the documentary is about.
