ABOUT THE FILM

Uganda We Rise is an independent documentary film that will be featuring stories of young Ugandans rising to the occupation, pushing the envelope, gathering resources, and forging their futures.

We realized that it is no longer the time for Ugandans to idly sit by and allow foreigners to tell our stories. International media has done a good job of telling the sad African story, the pitiful story, of African children suffering without hope. What they neglect to tell are the success stories of young African people rising to the challenge and paving a way to a brighter tomorrow for themselves and their families.  

This situation got me concerned and I knew I needed to tell the full story that is why we are creating this film.  This film will shed a positive light on our country and continent as a whole. We are not only telling stories, we are changing our image, inspiring young entrepreneurs and forward thinkers. 

SUPPORT THE FILM

Please support this film and help us change the narrative of the “pitiful” story, to the one that shows the determination and strength of the Uganda people. 

“Uganda We Rise!” This film would not have been possible, or come this far, without the continued and generous financial support of individuals who have been so very kind to this effort, We offer them very humble thanks.
