Last year, 130 former street children, aged from 6 to 20 years, at the pioneering Les Enfants de Dieu centre in Kigali, Rwanda, were granted their dearest wish: to be taught to “break”, the original hip hop dance form. Catalyst Rwanda took the world-renowned Pervez from Live 2 Break crew to share hope, life and hip hop culture with these remarkable young people.
Yes Man! is Bret Syfert’s moving and inspiring film of the project for Catalyst Rwanda. Beyondo wrote and recorded the soundtrack.
The project continues in 2012, when we plan to return to Rwanda with Pervez towards the end of the year. Please help the project to continue! Every small amount helps.

Just to highlight that the organisers are volunteers, so all funds raised goes directly to the project. Film-maker Bret Syfert also paid for his own flight to come on the trip. He has been so inspired by his visit that he is going back to Rwanda, with his wife, as volunteers at the centre from April to August 2012, to teach English and continue breaking with the boys. If you would like to help Bret directly with his flight costs, you can donate via his site: hydeslovelies.com.
