South African Education Initiatives

March 5, 2008

What It’s About:

Henry has begun talking about his recent trip to South Africa, where he was faced with poverty, AIDS , and issues surrounding the imminent and inevitable increase of orphans, as their mothers continue to die from AIDS, hunger and sickness.  There can be no chance without education.

How Henry Helps:

Increasing awareness through his talking shows, recently filmed two shows in South Africa, which will be broadcast, along with footage of his travels through the streets, later this year.  Watch for a forthcoming DVD release.
