RESPECT, EMPATHY, INCLUSION

Educators’ Rwanda Trip

Every year, Carl Wilkens has taken several groups of educators to Rwanda to visit memorials and sites described in his stories and the book/documentary I'm Not Leaving. This trip is designed for educators, organizational leaders, and bridge-builders. The itinerary includes visits to commemoration sites; interactions with survivors, perpetrators, peacemakers, and entrepreneurs; and adventures through Rwanda’s beautiful landscape. Each trip is a unique experience that enables group members to see how Rwandans are working together to rebuild trust and rebuild their country. Participants take home practical strategies for teaching more effectively in educational settings and “finding the good” in their own lives.
