Winning NH youth volunteer made film about child homelessness in the Philippines
John Heald, 19, of Bedford, N.H., a senior at Phillips Exeter Academy, created 'The Stairway Project,' a documentary about child homelessness in the Philippines and the foundation, Stairway, that was created by his friend Zach’s family to help rehabilitate children living on the streets. John raised $4,000 to purchase equipment for the film and, together with Zach and five other friends, traveled to the Philippines to shoot the film, for which John is busy scheduling bookings at high schools and colleges.
