Our vision is to see communities enjoy peace and rights, so that they can grasp their full potential in life.
The Rwanda Institute for Conflict Transformation and Peace Building is a non-profit organisation whose foundation is to lend a hand in rebuilding society through the process of forgiveness and reconciliation. It was founded in 2013. Most communities in Africa, particularly in Rwanda, have been greatly affected by a history of domestic and political violence that has left many people physically, emotionally and psychologically wounded.
Our dream is to expand our community outreach to the entire region, particularly to South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo where acts of violence have been prevalent.
