TUMAINI, The hope ISHARA MUSIMWA Gentil, NADEGE CIBOGO Felista, Université Catholique de Bukavu and Université Officielle de Bukavu

This film titled ‘‘Tumaini’’ (Hope in Swahili) is about the situation of women and girls in the rural areas in the Eastern part of the DRCongo. In this region, girls’ right to education is not considered at the same level as boys rights. So due to the extreme poverty of the population of this part of the country, girls are forced to drop school by lack of school fees. So Gentil Ishara and his fellows try to bring solution to this situation by creating a program named GEP SCHOLARSHIP to support the school fees of girls in rural areas of DRCongo, and thus give the hope to a good future.
