Unity Club forum takes place in Kigali at its 12th session, focusing on the ‘Ndi Umunyarwanda’ Program and how it contributed to help Rwandans to progress as far as unity and reconciliation are concerned.
Speaking during the retreat to prepare the forum, Julienne Uwacu, Unity Club Member said that Ndi Umunyarwanda Program is the Principle Foundation and that now all people understand the importance of Unity and Reconciliation, that it is crucial for the survival of our country.
“We believe we should all practice this principle that we believe in, that we are all Rwandans. That will be one of the points emphasized during the discussions. We will also look at our progress over the last 5 years and the areas that need more work,” Uwacu noted.
The forum will highlight a tremendous journey in building Rwandan unity and Reconciliation as the fruit of good governance from security, peace and development of every Rwandan.
Fidèle Ndayisaba, Executive Secretary of National Unity and Reconciliation (NURC) said that the Ndi Umunyarwanda Program was born in the Unity Club and the Umurinzi W’Igihango Initiative came from the Ndi Umunyarwanda Program, and from Unity Club as well.
“We work with that Club to implement it. Members meet every year and discuss such initiatives and from such discussions, programs to promote Unity and Reconciliation are derived,” Ndayisaba noted.
Unity Club was founded back in 1996 by the First Lady of Rwanda Jeannette Kagame and it brings together current and former Government Officials, as well as their spouses.
