UNILAK Students embrace heroism in preparation for National Heroes’ day

In a spirited effort to instill a deep sense of patriotism and celebrate the upcoming National Heroes’ Day, students of UNILAK Kigali Campus were engaged in a talk show on heroism. The event, organized by the Chancellery for Heroes, National Orders and Decorations of Honour (CHENO)  in collaboration with UNILAK, aimed to prepare the youth for the celebration of National Heroes’ Day on February 1st.

The talk show, held on the university campus, was a dynamic platform where students held discussions about Rwandan cultural values, the essence of heroes, and the historical significance of the country’s heroic figures. The event emphasized the importance of nurturing a strong sense of patriotism among the younger generation and encouraged students to embody heroic virtues in their daily lives.

During the discussions, students were not only educated about the historical context of heroes but were also urged to adopt heroic values in their everyday lives. The speakers emphasized that heroism is not limited to grand gestures but can be demonstrated through small, impactful actions that contribute to the betterment of society.

“We want our students to understand that heroism is not confined to the pages of history; it is a living, breathing concept that can be embodied in their actions,” remarked Dr. Rulinda Euphrard , the Dean of Students at UNILAK Kigali Campus.

Throughout the event, students engaged in discussions and shared personal reflections that encouraged them to think critically about their responsibilities as citizens.

National Heroes’ Day, celebrated annually on February 1st, is a momentous occasion in Rwanda that honors the heroic figures who have played significant roles in the nation’s history.
