Adventist for Development Relief Agency (ADRA) trained Muhanga illiterate and needy youths on hands-on strategies to achieve economic development. Unity and reconciliation was singled out as the key to self reliance and development.
The 2 days training started on the December 2, 2013 and attracted youth from all Muhanga district sectors.
The training focused on unity and reconciliation, forming co-operatives, as ways to get youths out of poverty.
“When development activities are incorporated through unity and reconciliation associations, there is tangible development,” said Osee Ndahiro, ADRA Project coordinator.
“I was more inspired by the unity and reconciliation testimonies as well as the success stories. At last I can let go of hatred and focus on economic development,” said Specioza Nyanzira, a participant.
ADRA has operated in Rwanda for over 35 years in different developmental projects ranging from adult literacy, education, health, agriculture and others.
