Rungano Days:

Foundation of Leadership Development

When we all come together, we learn to stand up as individuals.

The RNI community welcomes everyone arriving to start a Rungano Day!

Vulnerable youth are often treated as failures and a burden to the community.

 We were treated that way too, but today we are leaders who created Rungano-Ndota. 

We are proud to see RNI changing the community’s perceptions.

To improve our futures, first we come together at Rungano Days

to grow as leaders!

Rungano Days unite the entire RNI community from early morning until late afternoon on one Sunday every month. The days build community with singing and group activities, breakfast and lunch.

We take a main theme and explore it through workshops and discussions in our RNI “family groups.” We learn a lot and actually have some fun too!

Throughout Rungano Days we are constantly building

 

the 10 capacities of holistic leadership.

Our methodology is learner-centered and experiential. In Rungano Days we create experiences through activities we do together, and we also learn from sharing our actual life experiences.

We create a family feeling by sharing special meals together that we don’t usually have at home.

To help our youth connect and trust each other,

first we use different energizers, 

games and physical exercises.

Since many of our youth did not have a chance to go far in school, they missed the chance to learn the history of our country. 

So we take RNI youth to visit museums, memorial sites,

and other historical places in Rwanda.

Every year we proceed through a cycle of leadership topics

that help us empower each other.
