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.
As a proactive and practical education program, it is designed to educate Canadians by providing them with both the tools and motivation to affect change - in their communities and on campuses, both in Canada and around the world.
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 youth and students to engage with social justice issues. We hope to motivate participants to share their knowledge from the trip, including delivering presentations and leading discussions related to the genocide.
Last year's trip is cancelled due to COVID-19.
As you may have realized, it is quite hard to plan a group trip on another continent while applying necessary social distancing and avoiding non-essential travels. We are fully committed to plan another trip as soon as the world gets through this though period (which we hope to see happen soon). In the meantime, you might be interested in learning more about the level of precaution, responsibility and discipline Rwanda is demonstrating in its effort against the pandemic! We will be watching it closely as well!
