I believe in the power of storytelling and how narratives can serve as an effective planning tool. BBR was founded to act as a catalyst for building a bridge between North Americans and Rwandans to redeem humanity, following the tragedy of the 1994 genocide in Rwanda. In the last eighteen years, Rwandans have reshaped their future through hard work and commitment. They are bouncing back from the abyss of yesteryears and rising to become a model in sustainable development. If are interested in our country’s journey to achieve its Millennium Development Goals and beyond, please visit our resources or news on Rwanda pages.
BBR offers you a unique opportunity to serve, learn and grow through participatory action. Post genocide Rwanda provides a living laboratory for those who are learning about post conflict societies. Get involved. Become part of the solution in the reconstruction of Rwanda. Our programs open a window for a more nuanced understanding of Rwanda. Come, work side by side with Rwandans and travel to see the beauty of the Land of a Thousand Hills.
Join us in building a new and prosperous Rwanda.
