The Fresno Seven. Watch the full 10-minute film:

Earlier this year, seven people from Fresno traveled to Guinea-Bissau, a nearly-forgotten corner of the world. For 10 days, they joined the Fresno-based nonprofit West African Vocational Schools on a journey to learn about Guinea-Bissau and its people. They witnessed poverty. They encountered hope. They came home changed. And now, for one night only -- on October 6, 2017 -- their story will come alive in Fresno. You are invited to join them. Come and experience West Africa for yourself.
