Participants begin to arrive in Rwanda

The Lutheran Church of Rwanda (LCR), in partnership with the Lutheran World Federation (LWF) and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), is hosting a conference on youth leadership here in Kigali, Rwanda. More than 80-100 youth, including international and regional participants are streaming into Rwanda beginning today to discuss ecumenism, reconciliation, and poverty alleviation.  The conference will have three components:  dialogue with church leaders and small group discussions; genocide memorial visit and reconciliation workshops; launching and building capacity of youth-led income generation projects.

Participants from Kenya, Uganda, Dominical Republic of Congo (DRC), Burundi, USA, Namibia and Rwanda converge at the Eglise Presbyterienne Au Rwanda;
