A Whisper to a Roar - Zimbabwe Students Recruitment Program
French philosopher Voltaire once cautioned, "It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong." As the powerful new documentaryA Whisper to a Roar demonstrates, Voltaire's warning has never been truer than it is today. Directed by Ben Moses (Taking the Hill: The Warrior's Journey Home) and inspired by the work of renowned democracy scholar and author Larry Diamond (The Spirit of Democracy), the film spotlights the perilous plight of pro-democracy activists in five countries as they mobilize against authoritarian governments that have been very wrong, in some cases for a very long time.
The Zimbabwe Students Recruitment Program is a non profit organization that seeks to provide financial assistance to qualified Zimbabwean high school graduates as well as other college students who are economically needy and are unable to meet the costs of college education.
