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 Christine Baingana, HOPE’s business development director, about how HOPE invests in Rwandan families through Urwego Bank, which serves over 300,000 clients, and HOPE Rwanda savings groups, which serve over 200,000 members. In Rwanda and around the world, the HOPE network invests in dreams through discipleship, biblically based training, savings services, and small loans.

Appetizers, virtual reality, and a chance to meet Christine will be available before and after the event. Childcare will be provided by Wayzata Free Church. If you plan to bring your children, please email Hanna Ruth:

Christine Baingana

Christine joined HOPE in 2010 as the SCA specialist, desiring to use her skills to advocate and educate on behalf of those in poverty. After serving as the Africa SCA regional director for several years, Christine stepped into the role of business development director, using her many gifts to manage donor relationships, speak at events around the U.S., serve on HOPE’s local MFI boards, and direct strategic partnerships and ministry initiatives. She holds a master’s in public administration from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government; a bachelor’s of business administration from Newport University, U.K.; and a diploma as an associate of business executives from Cavendish College, London. Christine’s professional background includes over 20 years of experience in financial services, corporate management, and development work.

While working in Kigali, Rwanda, from 1995 to 2009, Christine held the following positions: program manager at Tulane International LLC; managing director of the privatized national printing company (INR); director of banking operations at the Bank of Commerce, Development, and Industry; and senior manager for the Credit Card Department, where she launched the first electronic payment service in the country. Christine has four children, Keza, Rama, Muco, and Wera.
