A lecture titled "RPA’s Role in Liberating the Country in 1994: How can today’s youth sustain what has been achieved", was provided to this community as Rwanda celebrates the 29th Liberation Day.
Brig Gen Rwivanga stressed the need for continued dedication, hard work, and a sense of shared responsibility among the youth to maintain the progress already achieved. He urged the students to be active participants in shaping the future of Rwanda, reminding them that their actions today would lay the foundation for a prosperous and peaceful tomorrow.
“I can tell you that the battles that we fight, the wars that we win, the victories that we register; are mainly undertaken by the youth. Be it in the jungles of Cabo Delgado, the deserts of Darfur, the green bushes of South Sudan, the youth are the architects of this peace and security. Therefore, make no mistake; you are not a degraded youth as many tend to think. You must get out of that line and stay in a good line,” said Brig Gen Rwivanga.
The Rwanda Institute for Conservation Agriculture (RICA) is an innovative higher education institution established by The Howard G. Buffett Foundation in partnership with the Government of Rwanda.
RICA combines research, education, and extension to train Rwanda’s next generation of leaders in agriculture, while supporting Rwanda’s national priorities for agricultural development.
