Generation Rescue

Escaping the Poverty Trap

"Generation Rescue" follows four women from Burundi, Central Africa, who have been chosen to take part in a three year program that could change their lives forever. Having literally lived life on the scrap heap, the women are given food, housing, healthcare, education and crucial business skills. At the end of the three-year period, they must become self-sufficient. Do they have what it takes to turn their lives around and escape the poverty trap? And is this a model of development that more countries should adopt?
