The Nobelity Project's inspiring new film is about building Mahiga Hope High School in Kenya. After rebuilding a rural Kenyan primary school, Turk Pipkin and The Nobelity Project pledged to help build the area’s first high school. Through challenges and triumphs, Building Hope chronicles the construction of Mahiga Hope High and the connection between a thousand people in the U.S. and an African community working to create a better future for their children.

Building Hope was awarded the prestigious Lone Star Audience Award after the film’s premiere at the SXSW Film Festival.

The film includes appearances by Desmond Tutu, Wangari Maathai, Cameron Sinclair of Architecture for Humanity, and Kenyan youth counselor, Auma Obama, sister of President Barack Obama. Music by: Willie Nelson, Paul Simon, Eliza Gilkyson, Kat Emondson and Ayub Ogada.

‘Inspirational Red Bull for the humanitarian soul and proof positive that you – yes, you – can help fix our broken world and make a difference in the lives of countless others.’ - The Austin Chronicle

‘Building Hope is an inspiring documentary that not only builds hope for the youth of Kenya, but also empowers people thousands of miles away to affect change through small yet significant contributions.’ -
