As an outreach tool, The Boys of Baraka can spark discussions about the role of private educational foundations and educational reform. It can also help people confront the reality of American children who are lost to their families and communities because their childhood is erased by poverty, drugs, crime, absent parents, unstable homes, or violence. Finally, the film can inspire. Through their courage to change, the boys and their families provide hope for a better future.
