We filmed & created ENTREPRENEURSHIP Film Documentary to send to African youth very especially to Rwanda Orphans to inspire them and create their own income generating activities. Those activities will help them sustain themselves and their loved ones. However, the materials was so productive and well received that we decided to distribute them to other countries around the world. This is why we applied and got the approval to screen that documentary at the United Nations during the next Women Global Gathering Conferences (CSW 61) this month.
In order to make our Film available around the World we are looking for collaborators , partners, investors and distributors for our NEW INNOVATION.

MORE ABOUT THE EXCECUTIVE PRODUCER AND INPIRATION TO THIS DOCUMENTARY FILM
Marie Claudine MUKAMABANO During the genocide in Rwanda, I find myself jumping over the bodies of the people, children were being killed from my left and right, people were being shot in front of me. I really didn’t think I’d survive, I thought I’d die like everyone else. Therefore, I took a vow before God. I said, “Lord, if you save my life and I survive, I will do everything in my ability to help Rwandan orphans”.
Before that, my dream was to get a PhD in mathematics because I was really good in it. I was the first young girl in my school to win a scholarship to study Mathematics in the best Catholic school in Rwanda named “College Saint Andrew”. I was brilliant, So I thought nothing would stop me to get the PhD, and invent something which students would learn in school such as inventions of Archimedes, Pythagoras , or like others scientists who invented something that changed the world. It was a big dream for my age but I wanted to leave a legacy. My plan was to call it my full name “Marie Claudine MUKAMABANO”. I could visualize my invention in my dream when I was still in elementary school.
It would have been wonderful to have the students everywhere learning about my invention. So, the moment I made a promise to God to help the orphans, I changed my plan. I said that if God saved my life, I would not get the PhD in mathematics but instead I will study business and establish my organization to raise money, and to help orphans. Economics was my favorite field since it has a lot to do with math, because I really love math.
Due to the lack of the required number of students to study Economics, I was obliged to study business instead.
Why Do I Exist? Is a question I ask myself as a genocide survivor and I believe that my existence is to praise God and help others. I believe my existence is to change somebody’s life. I believe it’s my duty to promote peace, and to prevent evil acts by promoting the acts of kindness, and the benefits of performing God’s holiness.
In September 2005 when I was dancing with the Rwanda Dance Group, and we were talking about the genocide and the survivors in Rwanda. We were planning to figure out our next step as artists to help improve the lives of survivors, especially the orphans, which is my life’s mission. I remember telling Rwanda Super Star Jean Paul SAMPUTU that I wanted to name the organization that reflected myself, something that will make me definitely feel responsible for somebody. It came up in my mother tongue, KUKI NDIHO? “Why Do I Exist?” “Why I Exist?”
Sometimes, we blame other people for our failures; and we sit down with our arms crossed assuming that they will do something to solve our problems. I wanted to do something for the helpless to take responsibility, and make a difference in somebody’s life, because I wanted to acknowledge how God saved my life. That’s how Why Do I Exist came to life. It helped me to fulfill my promises to God, and the vow I made to God during the genocide in Rwanda.
THANK YOU so very much for all my friends and supporters who are helping to advance my Book writing project
Thank you so much for your ideas and guidance. Thank you. Thank you. May God continue to protect and bless you. Peace.

Marie Claudine, your mother would be so proud that you have turned such a horrible thing into a mission for peace and love across the world. Merry Christmas to you!
Dear Ms. Mukamabano,
I attended your “Never Again” in action presentation today at Lehigh University. I just wanted to thank you for your beautiful words. Your strong belief in God and your courage is truly admirable. Thank You again, and I hope to help with your organization in some way.
Dear Marie Claudine
I am very happy to have met you at our Ugandan Independence celebrations in Manhattan. Your love and enthusiasm was great and now after perusing through this great work of KUKI NDIHO I do want to thank you and encourage to continue doing so. Thank you for remembering the less fortunate. Most of us get here and just think about ourselves instead of working for those that are marginalized and destitute back home. Thank you for not only being an ambossodar of peace but also of hope and love. I cannot wait to see you or to work with you again. May God blessed your work.
” I thank the Kuki Ndiho Foundation for being proactive in bringing people’s attention to the needs of children in Rwanda. Our help is vital to providing them with the tools they need to succeed in the future.
The time that I spent in Rwanda working for the Kuki Ndiho Foundation made me truly appreciate Rwandan culture and the country’s people, who have shown such resilience in the face of the hardships resulting from the genocide of 1994. Rwanda’s people continue to build strength in Rwandan identity, shedding divisions over ethnic tensions .
”Jennifer BELLISARIO KUKI NDIHO Foundantion’s intern Summer 2010
I was so excited to meet you when you came to Mary Help of Christians Academy that in words I am not able to express how I felt. It was amazing to see you speak about the genocide with such calmness. I truly saw that in you there was peace. I am very grateful that I got the chance to meet you and I proudly wear the pin that you gave me. Once again thanks for coming to our school.

Hi it is Elisa Hack we met at church on Sunday. I know helping change the world can sometimes be a overwhelming task. If we all can choose one place to help then we can transform that one place in way we can. I choose Rwanda and I would like to support you in anyway I can.
Keep in touch,
— Elisa, student
Congratulations my friend. Keep up the good work!
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him.
— Rev. Alain L. Ndagijimana
Congratulations and please, never stop doing your things. This effort will benefit all of us and Rwanda as whole and for all in the future and I am very proud of you. Please, let us know if we can help on anything, providing some T-shirts that describe the event or something.
