Torn apart by war since 1996, Congo has become the deadliest conflict since World War Two, and has been deemed the Rape Capital of the World. With 48 rapes occurring every hour, Congo has become one of the most dangerous countries in the world for women. Once a women has been sexually abused, she is ostracized from society and is no longer viewed as a legitimate human being.
After hearing the stories of these women and the suffering the Congolese people have gone through, an idea turned into a plan. To use our skills most effectively, we decided we would travel to the area as a three-man team to film a documentary that would tell the story of these women.
The goal of the film is to raise $50,000 to build a community shelter where victimized women will be able to find a safe place to call home, a place in which to learn a trade and earn a living, and a place where local children can attend school.
Our mission is to change lives.
