Talent Empowerment Programme (TEP) has launched a movie and book to raise funds in support children living with disabilities and the less privileged in the society.
The studio film titled ‘Iye’ which was adapted from the book ‘Mother ’is an innovative media concept that depicts forgiveness and focused on redressing family values in the country.
Julie Agnes Omeike, lead initiative, TEP said during the launch in Lagos recently that the performances was done by CYON St. Gregory Theater Group. According to her, we are trying to redress domestic violence in the Nigerian families and trying to tell people about the importance of forgiveness in relationships’’
Iye, she explained, means mother and was chosen as the title because mothers play vital roles in children’s upbringing ‘and when you talk about mother, what comes to your mind is affection and caring attitude.’ she said.
She explained that proceeds from the sale of the movie and the book would be used to support children living with disabilities in orphanages and the less privilege, adding that TEP provides free master classes in script writing, content writing, cinematography and directing to talented actors.
TEP which trains women in liquid soap and cake baking has also held talent shows and involved in charitable acts to improve the living standards of Nigerians.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are readingNigerian Catholic Reporter than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Nigerian Catholic Reporter’s independent, engagement journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because of our strong desire to use this platform to redirect the warped thinking of perceived citizens of God’s kingdom towards biblical injunctions and God’s desired culture for His people.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as N500, you can support Nigerian Catholic Reporter.
