Ortis Must Go! is a campaign to help take 1 man on a journey of self-discovery and cultural preservation, through appreciation for his mother's language, Twi, a colourful language which comes from Ghana, West Africa. Twi is one of several Ghanaian languages, that are at risk of dying out in the diaspora because many 2nd and 3rd generations of Ghanaians cannot speak them fluently. This means that many are losing touch with their cultural heritage and identity. The money raised will go towards the production of the sequel to 'British Ghanaians: Lost In Translation’ (2015) a feature-length documentary about preventing Language Endangerment, amongst the British Ghanaian community in the UK. Language Endangerment is taking place globally and it is estimated that within the next 50 years half of the world's 7000 languages will be wiped out.This was presented by Ortis Deley (The Gadget Show, Channel 5). Part 1 had been funded by the former UK Sky Channel OH TV, however, this is an independent project, for which we will need your help to make it happen!
The sequel will be filmed in Ghana and will address the following issues:
1. Opportunities for Ghanaian language learners (jobs, contributions to the economy etc.)
2. The effects of the current education system on fluency.
3. What native Ghanaians think about the fluency problem within the diaspora.
The aim is to inspire a revival of Ghanaian language learners within the diaspora, thus keeping the richness and beauty of it's languages alive for generations to come. The working title of the sequel will be revealed in the updates in the following weeks.
