How a small local organization turned into a global ‘Peacebuilding’ influence

Article cover: 

In 2002, three young students at the former University of Rwanda in Huye bore an idea that would eventually turn into a major peace building influence.

 

At that time the university was marred by tensions, as hate words were scribbled on the walls of the campus buildings.  The three students refused to be bystanders and initiated a platform that would help them act as peace ambassadors.

 

Since 2011 NAR has hosted more than 150 youth and young professionals who are passionate about ‘Peacebuilding’ from Africa, Europe, Asia, USA and South America
