Aug. 2017 Peace Education Camp
Here are some updates on our 2017 peace initiative camp. This camp included about 65 Rwandan high school students from 25 different schools across the country. The Agahozo-Shalom Youth Village, a school and special community for the most vulnerable orphans in Rwanda, is the host school for the program. We were fortunate enough to partner with many experts in the field of peace education and genocide prevention in Rwanda such as Never Again Rwanda, the Institute of Research and Dialogue for Peace, Aegis Trust, and Honorable Bamporiki Edouard. We would like to say a special thank you to the Davis Foundation, University of Rochester, and Sarah Lawrence College for providing and assisting with funding opportunities for this project.
