The Rwanda Initiative

The Rwanda Initiative is a partnership between Carleton University's School of Journalism and Communication and its counterpart at the National University of Rwanda. The media capacity-building project has sent more than 130 Canadians from the journalism field to Rwanda to teach journalism, work as media interns or conduct training sessions with working journalists.
