HISTORICAL CONTEXT

Twenty-five years after the Rwandan Genocide Perpetrated Against the Tutsi, there exists a divide of two generations; a generation that lived through and survived the genocide against the Tutsi, and one that was born after the genocide. The former generation fought selflessly for the peace that Rwanda enjoys today, while the latter has lived and enjoyed the fruits of the peace that the former laid out, almost as though it is a birthright. While this is not a completely wrong perception, it is also true that one who forgets past mistakes is prone to repeat them naively.
 

Critical Thinking For P.E.A.C.E. (CTP) is a fiscally sponsored organization which brings Rwandan youth, of the generation after the genocide, together for different programs which promote peace sustainability, social cohesion, empathy, and cultural celebration and preservation.

 

Co-founders Julia Lisi, Ian Manzi, and Derrick Murekezi are passionate about creating the next generation of critical thinkers who understand their role in sustaining peace in their communities. In Rwanda today, there exists a divide of two generations; a generation that lived through and survived the genocide against the Tutsi, and one that was born after the genocide. The former
generation fought selflessly for the peace that Rwanda enjoys today, while the latter has lived and enjoyed the fruits of the peace that the former laid out, almost as though it is a birthright. While this is not a completely wrong perception, it is also true that one who forgets past mistakes is prone to repeat them naively.
