Never Again Rwanda aims to promote mutual understanding, respect, and use of conflict transformation processes among youth in order to build sustainable peace in Rwanda.
During the 2-week Peace-building Institute, Never Again Rwanda brings together Rwandan and International university students in Kigali to answer the question "What can Rwanda teach the world?" Through readings of a shared set of texts, site visits, lectures and group discussions, participants explore themes of genocide, transitional justice, unity and reconciliation, and democracy and good governance.
The students have the opportunity to engage in critical thinking and problem solving, analyze complex issues and develop skills as global citizens in cross-cultural dialogue.
Peace-Building and Commemoration Project
In order to engage youth in dealing with the past constructively, Never Again Rwanda conducts trainings, workshops, national and international public speaking competitions, national and regional conferences on topics related to dealing with traumatic past to build a better future, as well Civil courage during war and genocide. These activities help youth to understand how the past can be reflected on to build a brighter future and get more involved in peace building processes.
