Road to Hope Film Screening * ($20)

 

In Sub-Saharan Africa, when a parent is struck with a life-threatening disease, children are often forced to become the primary caregiver. With no source of money, the children must leave school to earn whatever living can be found while still caring for their dying parent. Road to Hope documents the lives of child caregivers and those they meet on their journey. With music composed by Marvin V. Curtis, dean of the Ernestine M. Raclin School of the Arts, proceeds from this reception and screening will benefit the Road to Hope Fund, supporting child caregivers in Africa. Attendees will also receive a discount when purchasing tickets to the Center for Hospice’s Okuyamba Festival. RoadtoHopeFilm.com
