Build A Future Book Premiere

Sedrick shares about YARID at St. Augustine high school and teachers and students present his book, Build A Future, the story about his life struggle from Congo to Uganda to the United States.

Build A Future || Construire un Avenir

“The courageous journey of two refugees from the Democratic Republic of Congo.”

Students from St. Augustine High School in San Diego, CA made Sedrick’s story into a book. With the guidance of French teacher Marie-Line Allen and art teacher Mickey Carson students craftily translated and artfully illustrated Sedrick’s story into French and English.

We thank you St. Augustine for your support and your listening ears and observant eyes in turning this story into a medium others can experience.Image

YARID Documentary Film Coming Soon

In Spring 2012, YARID founder Sedrick Murhula filmed the life of refugees living in Uganda. The film is in post-production and will premiere in San Diego, CA in Spring 2013. We will be looking for groups in San Diego and nearby cities to host showings to raise funds for YARID’s programs.
