THE PRICE OF HOPE
A Documentary Film (in post production)
The Price of Hope is a film about strength and resilience in the midst of inconceivable trauma. While the film reveals the dangerous practices of female genital mutilation (FGM) and child marriage, it gives a voice to the rescued girls and emboldens them to inspire and encourage others beyond their community.
The film follows the extraordinary work of Dorcus and John Parit, who boldly go against tradition to rescue girls in Kimana, Kenya, from FGM and child marriage. The rescued girls are taken to the safety of Hope Beyond Transitional Center, where they can find safe refuge, recover, and receive a quality education, as many of them have never been to school before their rescue. Commentary from some of the rescued girls, community elders, activists, and the Parits’ point of view drive the story
"Female genital mutilation (FGM) and early childhood marriages among the local people is rampant. Child brides are deprived of childhood rights. They are subject to violence and sexual abuse."
