Building Hope chronicles the construction of Mahiga Hope High, the first high school for this remote African community and the connection between a thousand people in the U.S. and an African community working to create a better future for their children. The film highlights the promise education can have on children's lives and the cultural and educational complexities of building a school in Africa. Dr. Lori Czop Assaf will lead a discussion about schooling in Africa -- specifically highlighting her experiences working with a community in South Africa that mirrors the educational resources in the movie.
