Posted: 3/30/2018 (Local Events)

An award-winning short documentary is screening at the Husky Union Building at 7:30 PM on Wednesday, April 4th: Mama Rwanda.

Mama Rwanda tells the story of life in post-genocide Rwanda told thru the eyes of working mothers who have traded subsistence living for a life of business innovation and, in so doing, sparked both enlightenment and controversy in their communities. Set against the backdrop of national reconciliation, these women are helping to turn post-genocide Rwanda into one of the ten fastest growing economies in the world.
