Rwandan Diaspora Youth Networking Conference

Community & Culture

  • What social, cultural and economic challenges do young Rwandans living in the UK face? 

  • How do young Rwandans navigate a dual culture in which they are ‘far from home’ and might feel disconnected from their cultural identity and people in Rwanda?

  • How can young people in the community work together to prevent each other from being drawn into risk behaviours and a life of crime? 

  • What can be done to empower young people to make their voices heard in the decision-making processes in their communities both in the UK and Rwanda?

  • How do we create bridges between Rwandan youth abroad and Rwanda? 

With the theme ‘Empowering the youth to thrive and transform their communities’, the Rwandan Diaspora Youth Networking Conference brings together Rwandan youth aged 18-30 living in the UK together with youth leaders, young entrepreneurs from Rwanda, representatives of the Government of Rwanda, private sector from Rwanda and academia to address the above questions. The aim is to provide a platform for sharing experiences, thinking about solutions, and building alliances with each other for mentorship, leadership and inspiration. Through a series of presentations, focus group discussions, as well as interactive plenary panels and roundtable discussions, the conference will explore challenges, opportunities and solutions to the above issues.

Following the conference, there will be a buffet and thrilling entertainment...!
