- Heidi Ewing, creator of a Point of View (POV) documentary, "The Boys of Baraka"
- Malissa 9/13/06: "Thanks for a great show about the Baraka school. When I saw it come on PBS last night I had to keep it on to watch with my 17-year-old sister. She couldn't believe that it was an accomplishment that 75% of the students went on to finish high school. I rooted for Richard and Romesh the whole time, and was so sad how it ended up for them. Thanks for opening my eyes and providing a forum for global communities."
