Video Simien Ethiopia. The Children in the Cloud Foundation gives a very important place to communication. Indeed, it allows us to report to our donors on the progress of the operations and the good use of the funds that are generously entrusted to us. Video is particularly important. We consider video to be a format that is very well suited to reporting on our actions. In just a few minutes, thanks to images, interviews, voice-overs or graphic overlay, the viewer has a general, illustrated and relatively precise idea of the progress of the Foundation's work. This first level of information can easily be completed by reading our Press Releases or our reports.

This video was shot in May 2016, during the first trip dedicated to the validation of the Children in the Cloud project, in which Chrystèle Doulat, Eric Collet and Hervé Doulat participated. The landscapes are those of the beginning of the rainy season, which could be compared to beginning of winter here, with nature in hibernation and cool temperatures.
