The First Lady and Chairperson of Imbuto Foundation, Her Excellency Jeannette Kagame, delivered the welcoming remarks at Imbuto Foundation’s Youth Forum Series themed “Edified Generation”, held at Amahoro National Stadium (Petit Stade) on 10 June 2017.
The Youth Forum Series is part of the Foundation’s Youth Empowerment and Mentorship Programme, which started in 2007, and through which an array of activities have been organised on a national scale, to fully engage, educate and empower young people.
This forum, themed “Edified Generation”, focused on the importance of giving back to one’s community, leveraging networks, and the continued empowerment of Rwanda’s youth.
Through the forum, youth will be encouraged to develop an empowered attitude towards developing not only their own future, but to also nurture their talents.
Edified Generation brought together over 2,000 participants, with the majority being students and alumni of the scholarship programme, aged 14 to 30, young professionals, partners and stakeholders.
