Two or three times per year AGLI brings our African partners to report on their grassroots peacemaking work to American, English, and/or Canadian audiences. If you would like to arrange a speaking engagement at your meetinghouse, church, group, or community; or would like to host one of our African partners, please contact us.
Sponsor a Rwandan secondary school student
HROC Rwanda runs a youth scholarship program for needy secondary school students identified by community leaders. AGLI recruits sponsors to support students during the school term, and HROC Rwanda sponsors a retreat for these students once a year. Sponsors receive a report and a thank-you letter from their student at the end of the school year.
Become a HROC Facilitator
Twice per year the HROC Center in Rwanda hosts a three-week workshop to train new HROC facilitators.Each workshop brings together up to twenty participants from countries throughout the world for professional training to become facilitators of the HROC program. By the end of the HROC training, the participant will be able to co-facilitate a three- day basic HROC workshop in his or her community. Past participants have come from Rwanda, Burundi, Kenya, Uganda, DRC, the U.S., the U.K., Nigeria, and Canada.
