On May 23rd, 2024 members of the Unity and Resilience Club from UNILAK Nyanza Campus visited Maranatha College Secondary School, where they engaged with students in a public talk focused on the concept of “Ndi Umunyarwanda.” This initiative aimed to foster unity and resilience among the youth.

The university students passionately engaged with the secondary students, sharing the significance of Ndi Umunyarwanda in promoting reconciliation, peace, and national cohesion. They emphasized the importance of internalizing these values to build a stronger and more united community.

During the talk, the university members urged the Maranatha College Secondary students to establish their own club dedicated to the principles of Ndi Umunyarwanda. The proposed club will serve as a platform for students to actively participate in unity-building activities, discussions, and community service projects that reinforce the values of togetherness and mutual respect among their peers.

The event was marked by interactive discussions, personal stories, and practical advice on how to embody the spirit of Ndi Umunyarwanda; a program aimed at fostering a sense of unity and shared identity among Rwandans.

Mr. Jean Baptiste Niyitegeka, the head of students at Nyanza Campus, expressed his pride in the students’ initiative. “This is a remarkable effort by our university students to extend the spirit of Ndi Umunyarwanda to younger generations. It’s a testament to their dedication to fostering unity and resilience within our society,” he remarked.

The students of Maranatha College Secondary School responded positively to the initiative, expressing enthusiasm and a willingness to foster unity within their school.

As a result, plans are now underway to officially launch the new club in October this year. The launch event is expected to be a significant milestone, reinforcing the commitment of the students to uphold and promote the values of unity and resilience in their daily lives.

This initiative is part of a broader effort by the Unity and Resilience Club at UNILAK Nyanza Campus to extend their reach and impact, promoting societal cohesion and resilience among the younger generation.

As preparations for the October launch continue, both UNILAK Nyanza Campus and Maranatha College Secondary School are optimistic about the positive changes this new club will bring, fostering a stronger sense of unity and community among students.
