The Archbishop of Rwanda, Onesphore Rwaje, has told children from the church to see themselves as future leaders of church and country. The archbishop made his comments as 65 children from across the Province gathered at Gasabo diocese in an event organised by the Provincial Mothers’ Union (MU) of the Anglican Church in the Province of Rwanda (PEAR)
PEAR is “helping to create an environment that is highly favorable to the protection of children and the advancement of their rights,” the MU’s provincial coordinator, the Revd Immaculee Nyiransengimana, said. “Children are also given opportunity to develop their talents so that they will be good leaders for Church and country tomorrow.”
At last week’s event in Gasabo, Archbishop Onesphore Rwaje shared with the children the Church’s vision for them. He “reminded the children that they are tomorrow’s leaders of the church and the country,” Immaculee said. “He called upon them to use the opportunities given to them at home, at school, in church and in the community to develop their talents.
“He requested them also to do everything with target and build self-confidence of being important people because they are blessed children.”
After the event in Gasabo, the 65 children attended the province at an ecumenical children’s camp at College Saint André Nyamirambo, in Kigali, where they were presented with a cup for winning a competition.
