August 2014 HUMAN RIGHTS DELEGATION TO RWANDA

July 31st, 2014

Location: New York NY
Duration: Multiple Days
First Day : Jul 31, 2014
Last Day: Aug 21, 2014



During this GYC delegation, International participants will join with Rwandan peers to learn about human rights achievements and challenges in Rwanda and the world, and to take concrete action steps together to support current and future efforts for human rights protection and promotion, both in Rwanda and abroad. Through a combination of workshops, site visits, advocacy meetings, and volunteer service with grassroots NGOs, we will learn and act on numerous key human rights issues in Rwanda, including but not limited to: gender and human rights, human rights of children, LGBTI populations, historically marginalized indigenous groups, refugees, domestic workers, poverty reduction, public health, juvenile justice, freedom of expression and the arts. In advance of and during the delegation, all participants will examine the roots of the 1994 Rwandan genocide, and see how its legacy has impacted the country and its people, particularly Rwandan youth, and also how the country is attempting to rebuild today.
