Children in the West African country of Sierra Leone walk up to nine miles to get to school – on dirt paths lined with deadly snakes, through monsoons, in 100-degree heat with little to no drinking water, past abandoned diamond mines filled with malaria-ridden water, and down roads dominated by sexual predators. Then, after their last class, they have to walk home.
To help raise awareness for the nonprofit Shine On Sierra Leone – an organization dedicated to building new schools that bring education closer to the children’s homes – David&Goliath created a powerful campaign that includes, OOH posters, billboards and an Instagram initiative featuring 9 influencers who tagged each other consecutively in one of the 9 miles of the children’s journey. The 9-mile online journey helps contextualize the walk, which can take kids 3-5 hours on foot (and users 3-5 hours to scroll through), for those of us fortunate enough to be living in places where education is more accessible. As the user embarks on their 9-mile scroll, from the village to the school, they experience what the children go through day in and day out.
