I know this is something that will take time. I will need to learn the language of the country of the orphanage location, I will need stable financial support, I will need knowledge of business contracts and more. But I think I am young enough to dream and to plan ahead. I am willing to give all my time to this because it is going to be worth it, investing in young children’s lives and providing them with opportunities otherwise unreachable to them. 19 months ago

Sadie Kaye is a maverick documentary film-maker and acclaimed social entrepreneur with an insatiable appetite for adventure! In 2010 she sailed to South America (against all good advice) with a crew of British young offenders, she rode wild horses across Europe, she reported from inside Venezuela’s anarchic El Rodeo prison and she coerced violent street gangs in the slums of Caracas to disarm and join the Nobel Peace Prize-selected Proyecto Alcatraz.
2012 is promising to be just as busy with more adventurous projects and TV documentaries in the diary. She will return to South America & the Caribbean to build orphanages in Haiti and in Chiapas in Mexico, using young offenders from the UK as voluntary manpower. She’s also hoping to squeeze in another sailing expedition – this time to the Arctic Circle!
If you’re based near Chiapas or in Haiti and you want to meet Sadie and her team and get involved, email her directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Keep checking Sadie’s website http://www.sadiekaye.tv for details!
