What will you be doing?

The Twa pigmy tribes live precarious lives near the great lakes that border Western Rwanda and Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo DRC.  they are thought to be one of the oldest tribes in Africa but their future is under threat. They used to make a living by weaving baskets from reeds and making pottery from the lakeside clays but big business wanted their lands and so they were dispossessed of their historical way of life and moved on the Rwandan side to live in inaccessible mountain areas hours from fresh water and unable to make a living.  We want to assist the small tribes by buying herds of goats and erecting water harvesting tanks so that they are able to survive into the future.  Can you help, are you inspired?

What are we looking for?

A great video editor needs to be a storyteller, which means you must understand the elements to that story. If you're telling a narrative, what is the plot? Who are your characters? What is the conflict of your story?  How can you make the campaign come alive and motivate people to give. We have no live footage only photographs and voice over, what can you do with this, what could you add?

What difference will you make?

The video will be used to Crowdfund for the campaign and will be sent to regional media and organisations and individuals who wish to support our goals. The promotional video will be a vital tool aiding us to succeed in our campaign.  If you are inspired by our work then we need you to work with us.
