A Small Act (2011)
How Scholarships Can Change Your Life
This is a documentary tells the story of a Kenyan child who was able to access higher education due to a scholarship he obtained from a female Jew living in Sweden, as a reward for his good grades. This opportunity changes his life because for most Kenyan children free education ends at eleven years old. When he grows up and becomes a United Nations human rights advocate, he decides to create a scholarship program in order to offer the same opportunity he was offered to other children. The story revolves around three students who wish to apply for the same scholarship. It is relevant to cultural diplomacy because it shows how important scholarships can be to promote education and give opportunities to children born with limited resources.
