Mallory Minter

Mallory Minter (Initiatives for Peace and Human Rights - IPHR): Mallory completed her undergraduate education at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she earned degrees in International Relations (with a regional focus on Africa) and Public Policy Analysis. She has also worked as an English tutor for refugees and Tanzanian natives and in South Africa for a consulting firm. At the time of her fellowship, Mallory was studying for a Masters degree at The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy with a focus on International Conflict Resolution. After her fellowship Mallory wrote: “This experience has broadened my mind on how societies move through conflict and on the power of governments. This experience has also made me more comfortable in my own capabilities as well as more independent. Furthermore, this experience has opened my eyes to many causes -- many of which I do not know how to properly respond and, through this struggle, this experience has also helped me to improve my prioritization.”



MEET MUKAMUHIRE – A FILM

26 Jul

Introducing…my first short film!

This 4-minute film details the work of the Legal Aid Clinic – one of the many venues to which IPHR freely donates its services.

Specifically, this film captures the story of one woman, Mukamuhire. Here, Mukamuhire explains why she has traveled three days to the Legal Aid Clinic, the situation that brought her there,  and what help she has received. Mukamuhire also tells what she thinks about the idea of a Mobile Legal Aid Clinic – an initiative that IPHR is strongly pursuing and hopes to implement soon, once they have the needed resources.

This film was shot on location in Butare, Rwanda (or, rather, Huye, Rwanda…depending on the date of the map you are looking at*).  Hopefully it will give you a good idea of the cases that IPHR assists with on a daily basis.

*Butare was renamed to Huye in 2006 after an administrative reorganization. Many cities in Rwanda also underwent similar name changes.

PS – TO ALL MY EXPERT FILM-MAKING/FILM-WATCHING FRIENDS: film-making tips are greatly appreciated!! This is not the only film I’ll be making, and I know I have a lot to learn. :)
