In 1994 one of the worst genocides in modern time was perpetrated in Rwanda. Over 20,000 women became pregnant by their family’s murderers. 17 years later the kids born from the rape are at the age to start high school.
Considered as “outcasts” in their own society, Foundation Rwanda was created to help send these children to school.
Color Rwanda is a coloring book made by the artwork from these children, as we asked them to draw pictures of their lives; hopes and dreams. Through the coloring book, people could literally help making these dreams a reality and help put color to an otherwise dark part of their history. A short film documenting the journey to Rwanda gives a glimpse into some of the personal stories. The original drawings were auctioned out at a travelling exhibition that we created, curated, and hosted.
