BENEFITING: AEGIS TRUST, US
EVENT DATE: Jun 20, 2014
To celebrate my birthday, please help me raise funds for Aegis America, which supports the global education work of the Aegis Trust.
We can build a better world by inspiring young people to be upstanders against prejudice, ending the cycles of hatred that destroy communities across the globe.
Aegis Trust saves lives by changing the attitudes and behavior that fuels 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.
Our donations 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.
