PBSís "Visionaries" television program featuring G.E.P. is currently being aired nationwide. Entitled "Shilling for Shilling," this episode highlights G.E.P.ís work and the vision of its founder, Tony Silard. The program will be shown throughout the year on PBS stations across the U.S.

The documentary was filmed in rural Kenya and Tanzania, where G.E.P. has two branch offices. The story is a moving account of Tonyís vision when he started G.E.P., and the impact of the organization on local schools and communities. Against a vibrant backdrop of East African landscapes and music, viewers watch Tonyís dream take shape. The video highlights G.E.P.ís Entrepreneurship and Employment Training Program (EETP), and illustrates the difference quality education and access to capital can make in young peopleís lives.
