Synopsis: 

The refugee crisis in Uganda’s Kyangwali Refugee Settlement isn’t new.  For the people of this camp, being a refugee is a protracted circumstance endured for decades. SAUTI (“Voice” in Swahili) follows the efforts of five young women who were brought to the Settlement as children and who, as they approach adulthood; strive to pursue their dreams for a future beyond the constraints of a protracted refugee situation in an underdeveloped host country.  Though safer than they were before, little else has changed since fleeing war and persecution years ago in their home countries of Rwanda, Democratic Republic of Congo, and South Sudan.  Transcending the label ‘refugee’ has been especially challenging for the women of Kyangwali.
