Who We Are
Shout Canada is a non-profit organisation based in Canada and run by volunteers.
Our flagship education program is called Reflections on Rwanda. It brings Canadian students and young professionals to the country to join Rwandans in genocide education and remembrance.
For more than ten years, delegations to Rwanda have introduced activists to the history, culture and traditions of Rwanda, while confronting the tragedy of 1994 and carrying with them the story of the genocide and its Survivors to communities around the globe.
In short, Reflections on Rwanda is more of a movement than a program. Its purpose is to inspire students and young professionals to take action, to speak out, and to stand up.
We aim to act as a springboard for participants to engage with social justice issues by providing them with both the tools and motivation to affect change - in their communities and on campuses, in Canada and around the world.
Such little acts range from sharing knowledge from the trip, to delivering presentations and leading discussions related to the genocide.
“In remembering the Holocaust, we should think about what we can do as individuals to prevent genocide. That is the best way to honour the victims.”
- Dr. Jean Damascene Bizimana
Executive Secretary of Rwanda's
National Commission for the Fight against Genocide
"Rwanda can be a paradise again, but it will take the love of the entire world to heal my homeland. And that's as it should be, for what happened in Rwanda happened to us all - humanity was wounded by the genocide".
