"Tapestries of Hope" is the story of filmmaker and child rights advocate Michealene Cristini Risley who traveled to Zimbabwe to document the work of Betty Makoni and the Girl Child Network. The film exposes an issue that continues to be ignored: the rape and abuse of thousands of young girls in Zimbabwe by men who believe it will cure their HIV/AIDS.
"Tapestries of Hope" focuses on the young women brutalized by this practice. It depicts their story of survival and of hope. Because of the efforts of Zimbabwean Betty Makoni and her Girl Child Network, these victims are given a chance at a future.
