The Lollipop Project
Filming in Kenya in late 2012 we interacted with hundreds of children; at their schools, in their homes and as we crisscrossed the country in our production van. The filming had gone on for weeks and it was depressing to see these bedraggled babies, with their rags and obvious malnutrition. We wished a major charity was in the van, handing out food aid and clean water but we settled on lollipops, thousands and thousands of lollipops.
We'd see a group of children by the side of the road and stop and prepare for a lollipop moment, a way of giving love with no strings attached.
