Our Projects

slide03Our annual peace camp brings youth from the Great Lakes Region of Africa together for fun and learning in conflict transformation through peer mediation, trauma counseling, art therapy, and the use of sports, arts and media in peacebuilding. It is building understanding and friendship across borders. Learn more

Vision Club in the DRC helps to care for orphans. The club was started by former peace camp participants. Besides regular visits, the club has planted a garden for fresh veggies and launched a social enterprise to help raise funds.


We support youth peace clubs in Rwanda and the DR Congo, helping them to become self sufficient as they address local needs and gain experience in entrepreneurship through our 10,000 Dreams Challenge that supports income-generating activities.

A new initiative between peace clubs is #MeetYouAtTheBorder, our special cross border event at Rubavu and Goma as part of World Peace Day.

We also offer counselling workshops and other skills learning opportunities in partnership with community-based groups and others. And support the development of youth media such as our short film, Tears of Hope, and a new youth radio drama, Urumuri.

New projects in the works


In 2017, we launched YAE – Young African Entrepreneurs – with our partner Halo Highway to provide youth with skills in creating and launching a small business. The project includes business mentors from Rwanda, USA and Canada.
