BENEFITING: AEGIS TRUST, US
EVENT DATE: Jun 20, 2014
I am so looking forward to celebrating my birthday with you all. Please, NO GIFTS :) but if you’d like to support an organization that is close to my heart, here is some information on Aegis Trust.
Aegis Trust saves lives by changing the attitudes and behaviors that fuel cycles of hatred. I’ve witnessed their incredible work in Rwanda, at the Kigali Genocide Memorial – an inspiring and uplifting center of remembrance, documentation, learning and healing. Through peace education and a youth network, Aegis is helping to bring about transformational change, enabling children to overcome mistrust and unite to work for a shared, brighter tomorrow. You can hear from some of the young people and educators involved right here. Any contribution will go further than you might think, by helping Aegis' social enterprises, such as Kigali’s ‘Discover Rwanda’ youth hostel – empowering survivors with industry skills leading to full time employment.
We can build a better world by inspiring young people to stand up against prejudice, ending the cycles of hatred that destroy communities across the globe.
