SINA — Social Innovation Academy

"The Social Innovation Academy (SINA) educates former orphans, street children, refugees and other disadvantaged youth in Uganda to become job creators and social entrepreneurs with the ability to turn challenges into solutions."

High on a hill in the small rural town of Mpigi, Kampala, this close community of entrepreneurs form a soul-nourishing bond. Growing their own food, growing in confidence, building their own houses from earth-filled plastic bottles and presenting their business ideas. Finding new purpose and new life. The founders invited film-maker Willie Schumann and myself to stay to create a documentary film on the life-changing work they do at SINA. Some of the most inspiring and welcoming people I've ever met.
