The goal of this project is to enhance the education of students with hearing impairments, as well as the school community as a whole, through the use of computers. The use of technology, especially computers, is so important at this time. It greatly improves education and access to information outside of the child’s current environment. For a child with hearing impairments, it adds even higher value because so much learning takes place visually. The benefits of computer access and education are unlimited and this project will help students year after year.

The computer lab will be constructed on the school compound and will be equipped with 20 laptop computers. The village does not have electricity now, but the school has been running successfully on solar power for several years. This computer lab will be expertly constructed with the appropriate adaptations for solar-generated power. In addition to educating and empowering the youth of Kenya, we will be helping the environment by using a locally available resource, the sun.

Hackford graduated from USC's School of Cinema-Television in 2000. In a recent interview, he confirmed that he never attended film school, "When I finish a film, I put it away and I never look at it again. Occasionally I do now because of the DVDs and the commentary tracks. I usually put it aside and go onto the next. I never went to film school. I worked for the KCET public television station in L.A. I worked in concerts. I have done a lot of music. I feel very comfortable shooting music, and I think you can see that."[1]

On April 11, 2006, Hackford announced that he would be making his directorial debut on Broadway by bringing the 1992 Steve Martin film Leap of Faith to the stage as a Broadway musical. The score was written by Alan Menkin with lyrics by Glenn Slater, and is aiming for a 2007-2008 season debut. Hackford chose "Leap of Faith" even though he had previously been offered the opportunity to bring his film Ray to the stage. "What got me here was Alan Menken's score and how it so beautifully fit the book," Hackford said.[2]
