Program Sponsor: The School for International Training (SIT)
Program Name: Rwanda: Post-Genocide Restoration and Peacebuilding
Type: Experiential field-based
Housing: Students live in a homestay with a local host: six weeks in Kigali. Other accommodations may include hostels, guest houses, and small hotels.
Program Eligibility: Although there are no prerequisites, students should have an understanding of issues related to conflict/genocide theories and exhibit the sensitivity and psychological as well as the emotional maturity required to deal with these difficult and intense subjects. Dealing with genocide and its aftermath not only through lectures but also through field trips can at times be upsetting and difficult to handle. An interview may be required prior to acceptance. French language knowledge is not required but certainly an advantage.
