Summer Course on Human Rights and Peacebuilding in Post-Genocide Rwanda
July 26 @ 8:00 am - August 8 @ 5:00 pm$3,500
The TURIKUMWE (We are Together) program brings young leaders from Rwanda and from around the world together for an intensive two-week program exploring human rights and peace cultivation in a national and international context. Based in Kigali, the capital city of Rwanda, the program includes site visits throughout the country and an excursion to beautiful Lake Kivu.
During the course of the program, participants come together to explore different notions about human rights and peace education and to learn more about how to take action to promote peace and genocide prevention worldwide.
Global Youth Connect, in partnership with The Aegis Trust, enhances youth leaders’ personal interests and explores new angles on human rights, peace, and mass atrocities prevention through group discussions, workshops, site visits, homestays, and volunteer placements.
During the educational and inspirational two-week program, Turi Kumwe delegation meets with various governmental and non-governmental organizations, including: National Paralympic Committee (focusing on the people living with disabilities), Health Development Initiative (sexual and reproductive health), Rifa (LGBT rights), U.S. Embassy, Rwandan Ministry of Health, Aegis Trust (preventing mass atrocities and promoting peace-building education), Ejo Youth Echo (using media for peace promotion), Mind Leaps (street children social inclusion), Ineza Cooperative (woman living with HIV), Esperance (football and sports for hope), and more.
