“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” — Margaret Mead

The Event
Join us at the Kigali Genocide Memorial for a special conversation on how young people contribute to peace building through remembrance, policy making and community development.

After mass atrocities such as the Genocide against the Tutsi, the Holocaust and the Cambodian Genocide, there is an urgent need for peace and stability. While all members of society have an important role to play, the involvement of young people is essential to ensure peace is sustained for generations to come.

Join our Ubumuntu Exchange to discuss and understand how young Rwandans are building peace in their communities and how we can all support their efforts.

After a screening of the short film, “Rwanda’s Peace Education Plan with Aegis Trust”, produced by the Genocide Archive of Rwanda, join us for a conversation with young leaders working tirelessly to promote peace.

Speakers

  • Marc Gwamaka, Youth Coordinator at the Aegis Trust
  • Rameau Tangishaka, Youth Peace Champion
  • Sandra Olga, Youth Peace Champion

We look forward to seeing you!
