  1. Hi Erika!

    My name is Aaron Adams and I work at International Alert – the UK’s leading peacebuilding organization. We have a new short video out that describes an aspect of our work in Rwanda.

    The video, narrated by Bianca Jagger, highlights International Alert’s work in Rwanda bringing together survivors and perpetrators of the 1994 genocide. Enabling them to forgive and reconcile, and work and prosper together – so they can move forward, rebuild their lives and avoid the risk of renewed conflict.

    Below are two links – one to the video within our website and the other to our YouTube video. We’re eager to get the word out about the peacebuilding and conflict prevention work we do here at International Alert. After browsing your blog I thought you might like to join us in our endeavor. If you could post this video to your blog that would be a huge help in spreading the message that words are more powerful than guns and that violence CAN be stopped through dialogue. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Feel free to tweet about us as well, and we’d do the same for senegalwritinghome!

    Thank you for your time and consideration,

    Aaron Adams
    International Alert
