Speaking Engagement at LLT and Lycee Ngagara

On the 13th November, we visited a New Generation Club at Lycée du Lac Tanganyika (a public High School in Bujumbura) and taught the students the importance of making right decisions now in order to achieve their dreams and goals in the future. Through this session, the students learnt a lot from Nahimana Dieudonné and his testimony and experience in life.
We also spoke to more than 300 students from Lycée Ngagara on the 14th November about success and how one can become successful in life. This activity was organized as part of our campaign Urwaruka Turashoboye (Youth We can!).

Muyinga Gir’ubuntu campaign

On the 30th and 31st October, the New Generation team went to Gasorwe for a special campaign to promote healing and reconciliation in this community. We began the campaign with a special workshop on the 30th October, bringing together 70 youth leaders from different religions, ethnic groups and associations. Through this workshop, we looked at the history of Burundi and assessed the role that young people can play in order to end the cycle of violence in Burundi.

On the 31st October, we held a campaign in Bihogo where more than 1500 people came to hear a message of hope and encouragement, promoting peace and reconciliation. We started the campaign with an entertaining football match between Imboneza FC (NG football team) and 11 Rapide Junior from Gasorwe. After the match, the founder of New Generation conveyed the message of the campaign to the public.

New Generation Club Gasorwe

On the 11th and 12th November, New Generation organized a special meeting with more than 150 young people from Gasorwe, Muyinga. These youth came from different background, ethnic groups and religions. This month, we are planning to create a New Generation Club in Gasorwe. It is through this club that these young people will continue to meet up and follow different training and coaching sessions in leadership, entrepreneurship and active non-violence. Our goal is to prepare them to become good leaders who will positively change their communities in the future.
