The Feast It Forward™ film crew will be heading to Malawi, Africa June 2015 to shoot the documentary, produced by Co-Founders Kevin and Rebecca Gouveia, and Katie Hamilton-Shaffer, along with Claudia Sansone, Julia Carias, and Brook Altman. The film will showcase the incredible social transformation taking place in remote villages as a direct result of the positive developmental efforts of California couple, Claudia Sansone and Rob Hampton, DDS along with the impact the countries Gogo Grandmothers are having on Malawi’s orphan population.
June 2015 will be the fourth annual trip that Rob and Claudia take to Malawi where they are welcomed with open arms.

They also engaged Solar Cookers Intl to provide solar cooking kits as a safe alternative to traditional wood burning methods. “Smoke inhalation from cooking over an open fire is a serious health issue. Also, women must leave the village to collect firewood, which puts them in harm’s way. We want to keep the women and children safe,” explains Claudia.
Next year is quite monumental as there will be ground breaking on Dothi Village’s first ever pre-school, paving the way for an early childhood education program, which celebrates a major social transformation.

They’re literally feeding smiles and they inspire us.”
