Anuj Singhal, a participant in Landmark Education’s Team, Management and Leadership Program in Vancouver, has created a project to bring a new context of possibility to the media, going beyond what he was ever capable of doing himself.
The game created by Fanny Veliz as her project in Landmark Education’s Team, Management and Leadership Program is titled ‘Homebound’, which is the name of her upcoming feature film about Latinos in America. The film takes place in a small town in Texas and is a story of love, loss and family. Veliz says it will alter the way Americans think of the Latino community.
Before the program, Veliz reports, she didn’t think others would share her vision of the film, and tried to do everything herself. Now she has a full team of people to make her film vision a reality – see below.

Soon teens had created a fitness trail and farmer’s market, and town leaders joined her to help create business wellness programs and healthier school lunches, and a monthly radio show.

Herman Gmeiner, an Austrian-born man, had been given the task of creating and founding a village for homeless children who lost their parents as a result of the war. Over the years and while being present to his surroundings, Gmeiner realized that there were children on the streets as well as abused children, so these villages were growing and expanding. Currently these children are found in 132 countries. [Read more...]
