CANCELLED - "Kumasi-Haifa" Documentary Film Screening & Discussion


Unfortunately, due to scheduling problems, we have had to cancel this event. We hope to screen the film at a future date.

4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
10383 Bunche Hall
UCLA Campus

Cosponsored with the UCLA African Studies Center and the Graduate School of Education and Information Studies.

Kumasi Haifa is a 2012 documentary that tells the story of a small group of dedicated early childhood educators in Ghana and Israel and how they came together to make a difference. The documentary features two early childhood specialists, Janette Hirschmann, Director of Early Childhood Education Courses at the Golda Meir Mount Carmel International Training Center in Haifa, Israel, and Gladys Amaning, Director of the Kumasi Metro Education System in Kumasi, Ghana. Their goal was to generate a revolution in the education system in the city of Kumasi, that would hopefully spread to the whole country.

Janette and Gladys will be on hand to discuss the film and this unique educational project.
