Youth Programmes

Youth Forum Series

The Youth Forum Series (YFS), brings together different segments of youth in Rwanda including university students, Genocide survivors, young professionals, entrepreneurs and those living in the diaspora, and features exceptional speakers to address a unique theme, relevant to their needs and aspirations.

The project aims at giving youth a platform to discuss and identify common solutions; by engaging them on national policies and strategies as well as orienting them towards personal development.

This year, as Rwanda commemorated 25 years after the Genocide against the Tutsi, Imbuto Foundation in partnership with the Ministry of Youth, organised a National Youth Forum named Kwibuka25 Youth Conversation, engaging 200 Youth representatives from all 30 Districts. The forum discussed two main topics: ‘Notion of a Nation’, and ‘Sustaining Rwanda’s Growth”.

The forum was preceded by a Kwibuka25 tour during which young people visited Elders - Genocide survivors living in Impinganzima hostels - countrywide.
