“My Time to Rise” is a short film about all the aspects of Embrace Rwanda’s work.
In 2010 our friend Andrew Nguyen of Lemongrass Films produced the film “Mothers of Kigeme” which focused on the Healthy Mums Project.
In 2014 due to the enormous growth of our programs and the spread to many other areas of Rwanda, Andrew returned to capture the expanded scope of Embrace Rwanda. The moving account can be seen in the film “My Time to Rise”.
Through personal stories of people whose lives have been changed through their connection to Embrace Rwanda, “My Time to Rise” shows the evolution from the project’s beginnings. Today, Embrace Rwanda continues to inspire hope for a better future. Many community members who have been helped are now advocates, mentors and supporters themselves and the entire Embrace Rwanda community recognizes that this is special moment in time, where so many things are possible. This is their time to rise.
Please watch and enjoy “My Time to Rise.”
