Training future leaders in the AfriCanadian communities by bridging efforts and inspiring change across sectors.
The African Canadian community continues to face immediate cross-sector challenges throughout Canada. As a result, it is almost impossible for members of the African Canadian community to fully commit to building a community. Poverty, health disorders, and a lack of capacity and resources are among many issues which prevent African Canadians, especially youth, from Engaging in their Civil duties and building long-lasting cross-sector collaboration.

AlkebuLan Project: Phase One
The Rwandan Canadian Healing Centre chose to focus on Leadership Training as its inaugural project because the African Canadian community is less represented in the private and public sectors per capita than all other Canadian communities across the country.
RCHC’s strategy to affect change in the short-term, mid-term, and long-term was to create solutions to critical issues and challenges in the community, which will help RCHC achieve its mission of Building a Healing Centre.
These critical issues are Leadership, Cross-sector Collaboration, Community Wellness, Civic Engagement, Advocacy, Media and Resources, and Capacity Building.
