Operation Imani is a 57-minute documentary made in 2010 that profiles the Imani Vocational Training Centre (Imani VTC) in Tanzania. It details the innovative efforts that the school is making to achieve self-sufficiency in a poor, rural, resource-limited setting.
You'll meet the incomparable Sister Placida Mosha, founder and director of the organization, who was named a Laureate for Rural Development in 2008. You'll also meet students, teachers, pigs, fish, other nuns, and Greg.
