Thursday, June 16, 2005

Young people are gathering in Kigali for the first Global Youth Conference on Genocide Prevention.

Approximately 100 students from Rwanda, Burundi and the Congo will share ideas about the past and present in Rwanda as well as the future for the Great Lakes region.

The conference comes at a crucial time, with Rwanda facing the Gacaca process, the regional implications of that process, and the spotlight on Africa to an unprecedented level.
