Partner: University of Rwanda (UR)

The UR is a singular, multi-campus institution offering a wide range of academic studies. As such, it provides opportunities for students to pursue a variety of programs – some that are quite specialized in nature, others that are multi-disciplinary and/or problem-based in focus – and to undertake their studies at different locations across the country, both through classes at designated campuses and through access to distance learning.

The University of Rwanda (UR) was established by the Government of Rwanda through the law no 71/2013 of 10/09/2013. It resulted from the merge of the nation’s seven public Higher Learning Institutions into a consolidated entity governed by the Board of Governors and an Academic Senate with the strong staff and student representation, along with the Vice Chancellor who is the University’s chief executive officer.

Partner: Counseling Volunteers Club (CVC) in Rwanda

Hooley Dooley! HAHA!I have been made Honorary President of Counseling Volunteers Club in Rwanda which is an umbrella for 12 associations, at this present time, including international organizations such as F.X.B, an A.I.D.S charity supporting families affected by this disease. Also, Amahoro organization who is supporting children affected by A.I.D.S and other Genocide survivor associations.

C.V.C was founded by its President Banamungu Idi who was instrumental in organizing the Clay Therapy Training that I facilitated from Sophia College of Counseling in Australia.The Clay Therapy absolutely exceeded any of my expectations and I can truly say that I was priviledged to be witness to its amazing healing qualities with severely traumatized people.I listened to true and directly experienced horror stories suffered by Genocide survivors that had undergone many years of conventional counseling that had only marginally scratched the surface of their grief and loss.Many of the participants in the Clay workshops were dubious that anything could ever help their pain-filled hearts and bring peace back into their lives.I was so grateful that they trusted me and the Clay Therapy to persevere that little bit more through to the end of the Clay Sequences and find the healing they had needed so desperately, just to BREATHE FREELY again.It is incredible evidence that holistic approaches to healing and empowerment are successful in the rehabilitation of severely traumatized people and its because of this that I want to continue to provide Rwandese with more opportunities to heal beyond their own expectations!I know together we CAN do this.
