MAMA RWANDA

 

SYNOPSIS

Mama Rwanda tells the story of two mothers using entrepreneurship to overcome extreme poverty. Drocella, a village wife, and Christine, a city widow, represent a new generation of women business-owners transforming post-genocide Rwanda into one of the ten fastest growing economies in the world.


 
 
 
Mama Rwanda is a must see for anyone who hopes to help the people of Rwanda continue their amazing progress into tomorrow’s high tech world. Through their indomitable spirit, the women of Rwanda have created an economic success story out of the ashes of genocide.
— Joann Weiner, the Washington Post
