In April 1994, members of the Hutu tribe in Rwanda began slaughtering their fellow Tutsi tribal neighbors across the country. Within ninety days, nearly one million Tutsis and moderate Hutus had been killed. The Rwandan genocide stands out as one of the ugliest and most horrific events in modern history. Yet in the years following that unimaginable episode of violence, Rwanda has emerged as a model for peacebuilding and healing. Students will hear from genocide survivors and learn about the unique approaches Rwandans have taken to cope with the aftermath of genocide and work toward a sustainable peace. Various trips and excursions will give students the opportunity to observe and assist with a range of conflict resolution efforts across the country and in neighboring Uganda. With a focus on both interpersonal and international conflict resolution, the program will provide students with ideas and tools for helping to create and promote peace in their individual lives and throughout the world. Students will also experience the immense natural beauty of Rwanda and Uganda with trips to national parks to see the incredible wildlife unique to Africa.
