Essubi: Growing Up With Hope

Essubi: Growing Up With Hope
Extending the LINK's third documentary, Essubi: Growing Up With Hope, was filmed in January of 2010 by six CSB/SJU students. This poignant film focuses on teenagers in rural Uganda. These young adults become the primary caretakers of their families when their parents die of the AIDS epidemic, forcing them to sacrifice their education and provide food, housing and medical necessities to their younger siblings. Very often, the government and other organizations fail to notice struggling teenagers. Our documentary focuses on a few of these young Ugandans and organizations like the Uganda Rural Fund and Hope Integrated Academy that are actively working to break this damaging cycle.
