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.
“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.
Sedrick presented to St. Augustine High School in San Diego, CA today. He met with French students and the International Rescue Committee’s (IRC) Ambassadors Club on campus and shared about the life of refugees in Uganda. YARID received generous support through donations made by teachers and students as well. Special thanks to Madame Allen and Madame Carson for opening their classrooms for the event.
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.
