invites you to a special program with
Women's Empowerment Foundation
Pushing the Elephant chronicles the story of Rose Mapendo and how she escaped from the ethnic violence of the Democratic Republic of Congo to become a vital voice to help mend her divided country. She has assisted dozens of survivors to recover and rebuild their lives. But there is still one person Rose must teach to forgive – her daughter Nangabire.
Meet Rose Mapendo in person.
Film screening followed by Q & A and dessert reception.
