The Healing Centre
Shaping Our Future
Each of us has lessons given by life challenges. RCHC’s goal is to help youth identify those challenges and learn to marry their lessons to individual gifts, talents, and skills to help create life-changing initiatives for themselves and those who have similar challenges.
Mentorship is a crucial resource in every society, but today more than ever, youth – especially those from marginalised communities seek mentoring support but lack access to it. RCHC will work to provide platforms for Continental African Canadian youth to access mentors in areas of need.
In today’s fast-moving world, passion and great ideas are not enough to succeed – not when red tape still exists for racialized communities. Through its programs, RHCH will aim for cross-sector collaboration to bolster our capacity to build strong support networks.
Building a Healing Centre is our goal. However, success for us means linking arms with members of other African Canadian communities and Canadians overall to learn and share our individual experiences and solve challenges through collaboration.
After experiencing the aftermath of the Genocide against the Tutsi, Kizito decided to share his experience to raise awareness of PSTD within the Rwandan Canadian Community in 2016 by walking for 17 days from Toronto to Montreal – in the winter. Together with key members of the Rwandan Canadian community leadership, he established the Rwandan Canadian Healing Centre in 2018.
