Grace in Rwanda


(system) #1

Pastor Manuel Silva, of the Oakridge Adventist Church in Vancouver, British Columbia, interviews the leaders of Grace Rwanda, a non-profit founded by genocide survivers to educate young Rwandans about the power of forgiveness.

Grace Rwanda Society was founded in response to the events in Rwanda of 1994. In 100 days between April 6th to July 4th, genocide claimed the lives of approximately one million people in Rwanda. Grace Rwanda Society’s response is a commitment to supporting education for Rwanda’s young people. We believe that with education, Rwanda’s young people will continue to educate themselves and others, helping to create and sustain peace in Rwanda and in the world. Our core values are compassion, accountability, respect, and empowerment.
