Agaciro is about you, me and our future

Kigali, 6 October 2012

President Kagame today attended a fundraising event hosted by Umurinzi Reflection Center – a non-profit organization made up of Rwandans whose agenda is to mobilize Rwanda’s young professionals across the country to advance the country’s development agenda. All proceeds from the lunch went to Agaciro Development Fund.

While interacting with the young professionals, President Kagame thanked them for adding value to an initiative that is of itself of immense value;

“I look at all of you in this room and through you I see a future for Rwanda. I ask myself how less important are you than others from other countries. I see no reason that anyone should see you as less important or you yourself believe it. You are as important as anyone else in this country. We are trying to build our nation to the point that no one sees us as below others. What next? Rwanda wants to learn from others to be a better country not actually be another nation. Your generation is the one we have been waiting for. So you better stand up to be worth the expectation to the name so that others may come after you and take over. Keep moving forward.”
