Sahara Foundation is set to premiere a short film – Hanatu – which was produced and directed by ace filmmaker, Kunle Afolayan.


Hanatu tells the story of how a young corps member named Preye helps a little girl (Hanatu) in a village rediscover her confidence and hope for a bright future when he helps her secure a prosthetic leg following a dastardly accident which claimed her father’s life.

Bethel Obioma, head, corporate communications, Sahara Group, said Hanatu is “an expression of who we are and what we do – providing opportunities for aspirations to blossom into fruition. It is the mantra of hope; the demystification of impossibilities; a clarion call for sustainable development across climes and times”.

“At Sahara, Hanatu is more than a film, it is the gold standard we believe should drive all interventions geared towards sustainable development – an unwavering desire to support the less privileged. With a Hanatu orientation as our driving force, we are constantly seeking partnerships and opportunities for giving wings to hope and enhancing the achievement of the SDGs across the globe.”


He said the leading African conglomerate which has operations in over 10 countries across four continents will use Hanatu to reiterate the need for a global commitment to accelerated developmental programmes through collaboration involving governments, global development agencies, civil organidations and the private sector.

Hanatu will be premiered on Friday, July 7, at Terrakulture in Victoria Island, Lagos.

Thereafter, the film will be made available to the general public on Sahara’s website (
