""…the whole philosophy is that you ARE important, you DO have value…""

About

Our documentary, Every Child Counts, tells the inspiring and uplifting tale of a group of parents in a small island community who were faced with a bleak situation; other children bullied their learning-disabled children, and their teachers weren’t trained to deal with them. Most of the time they were told their children should not come to school at all.

Filmmakers

Producer/Director Wendy Loten and her crew have over three decades of experience in independent documentary production. Each of them also has a personal connection to the Bahamas that made producing this story extra special. Read about each of the crew members and discover the broad experience they have brought to film Every Child Counts.

ECC School

Every Child Counts school delivers more than an education to its students. Here individuals feel valued, capable, talented and intelligent despite whatever challenges life has thrown at a them. Located in Marsh Harbour in the Abaco island chain in the Bahamas, ECC proves that every child can learn, wants to participate and has something to offer. It inspired us to make this documentary, but we encourage you to discover more about their history, programmes and goals. Visit their website
