Templeton Campus Center

Solange Impanoyimana
Empowering Rwandan Women Through Literature
Thursday, April 13, 6-7 p.m., Templeton, Council Chamber

Solange Impanoyimana, the College’s 11th Roméo Dallaire Scholar, will share her experience as a genocide survivor and discuss an outreach initiative she will launch on her return to Rwanda with local community teachers.  This initiative will be made through Resonate, a non-profit that she co-founded.

Resonate will sponsor weekly literature clubs with girls between the ages of 16-20, later connecting these young women to the Kigali Reading Club to further develop leadership skills through self-expression, while empowering and fostering an inclusive local community.  Solange will invite your participation in this initiative.

Candlelight Remembrance Ceremony

The program will close with a brief candlelight ceremony of remembrance for the nearly one million Rwandans who died during the 1994 genocide.
