Original Project Scope
In April, 1994, genocide engulfed the tiny nation of Rwanda. The
current government is making efforts to establish peace and democracy
while discouraging any persons or events that would re-ignite animosity
between the tribes but there is only so much the government can do.
African Link Developments desires to establish a centre for training, peace, healing and reconciliation. This centre is to facilitate counseling, seminars, leadership training, mediation services, literacy programs, skills training, a library of resources for study and a safe environment for Rwandans to process grief and trauma.
This facility will consist of a village-like set of buildings that will house training/meeting rooms, counseling rooms, a library, food preparation, administrative offices and some guest accommodations.
Come join this EMI team as we partner with African Links Development to bring God's physical, emotional and spiritual healing to the people of Rwanda.
