Kigali Shaolin Temple is a kung-fu club in Rwanda started by a group of orphans from the genocide. They find fulfillment in passing on their skills and teaching young Rwandans the values of sharing, tolerance and mutual respect. The visual beauty of kung-fu highlights the resilience of a new generation of Rwandans, 20 years after the genocide.

"More than fellow members of a martial arts club, over time the Kigali Shaolin Temple members have become a family. They have created a place where people of different ethnic groups, social classes and religions meet; a moral and spiritual landmark."Africultures
