Schooling The World: The White Man’s Last Burden – Dec.14, 2011

Wednesday (December 14th) is the screening of the film “Schooling The World: The White Man’s Last Burden”. This is a beautifully filmed one hour long documentary that explores what happens when we replace a traditional culture’s way of learning about and understanding the world with that of the Western world, designed to prepare children for a world that, for the most part, is unavailable to them.

The evening will be a benefit for International Children’s Outreach Network (, the organization that Sooke resident Hum (Eric Anderson) donates his January to every year, at his own expense. Hum presented a slide show and talk at the December 2010 Awareness Film Night describing his work in the remote areas of Ethiopia, seeking out and transporting children who have birth defects or disabling burns to a distant city hospital where they can be given life-changing surgeries and even lengthy rehabilitation for free or minimal costs. This is a good chance to donate to a small organization that is volunteer-run so that it can give 100% of its donations to the work at hand with people who have few material possessions and no money.

Showtime is at 7 p.m. at the Edward Milne Community School theatre. Admission is by donation.
