OEL International

A media project that supports children and young people in North Africa, Middle East and South Asia to produce films that explore their lives and the issues that surround them, from their point of view.

These films give us an insight into young people’s lives. We see their daily activities, how they live, how they see the world, their beliefs, how they feel about their lives and their hopes and aspirations for the future. These films are also available as DVD education packs from MTR, so that schools and youth projects can use them as part of their global citizenship programmes with children and young people.
