The screening will take place at HOPE International’s Office: 227 Granite Run Dr., Ste. 250, Lancaster, PA 17601.
Join HOPE International’s staff for this special screening on International Women’s Day. Mama Rwanda is a 30-minute film documenting the lives of two women in post-genocide Rwanda. Follow the stories of Drocella and Christine as they seek to provide for their children and rebuild their nation through entrepreneurship.
Following the screening, we’ll also hear from Phil Smith, HOPE’s senior director of SCA programs, who served as World Relief’s country director in Rwanda for six years and as vice chair of the Urwego Bank board, where he worked closely with HOPE.
Phil joined HOPE International as director of savings and credit association (SCA) programs in December 2012. Phil brings a wealth of knowledge from his six years at World Relief, where he served as Rwanda country director for many years before transitioning to vice president of operations for marketing and Church engagement. While at World Relief, Phil also served as vice chair of the Urwego Bank board, working closely with HOPE during that time. Prior to World Relief, Phil served as executive pastor at Walnut Hill Community Church in Bethel, CT. Prior to this, he was with Pitney Bowes, where his roles included leadership of their financial services divisions in Canada, Europe, and the U.S. Phil is deeply committed to addressing Jesus’ call to active engagement in serving the most vulnerable. He says, “In its mission and work, HOPE is responding directly to that call to serve. I’m excited to be of part of it.” Phil holds a degree in business administration from Azusa Pacific University. He and his wife, Becca, have two sons, Sean and Iranzi, and reside in the Lancaster, PA, area.
