NAPA, Calif. - Feb. 4, 2014 - PRLog -- Feast It Forward (http://www.feastitforward.com/)™ announced today that their film crew will be heading to Malawi, Africa to shoot their first ever documentary, produced by Co-Founders Kevin and RebeccaGouveia and Claudia Sansone to 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.

This June will be the fourth annual trip that Rob and Claudia take to Malawi where they are welcomed with open arms.  Philanthropy is contagious and this year they will travel with a small tribe of doctors, dentists and educators to further enrich their offerings.  The couple has worked in collaboration with domestic Malawian resources to establish a much needed dental clinic located in Daeyang Luke Hospital in Lilongwe and ongoing training for nurses and dentists.  They also engagedSolar Cookers International (http://www.solarcookers.org/) 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.

This 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 majorsocial transformation. They will continue to Zomba to work withGogo Grandmothers (http://www.gogograndmothers.com/) and SAFE Africa (http://safeafrica.org/).

“Feast It Forward’s mission is to encourage people to live a philanthropic lifestyle,” says Katie Hamilton Shaffer, Co-Producer and President of Feast It Forward. She continues, “Rob and Claudia are everyday people like you and me and serve as a prime example of how we can live beyond our own backyard and truly make a global impact.  They’re literally feeding smiles and they inspire us.”

There’s quite a bit of excitement around The Malawi Project as actress Madeline Zima (Californication, #Stuck) will be joining the team alongside actor/filmmaker/writer Jeff Grace (It’s a Disaster, Super Zeroes, The Scenesters).  Both are personally committed to this cause and are eager to get involved as Jeff explains, “This truly is a movement with so much positive change.  We want to share their stories with the world, and that’s exactly what we’re going to do.”
