AFP travels to Rwanda with university students, community leaders, donors, and professors who care to learn more about human rights, reconciliation, and conflict resolution. The team is accompanied and guided by Drew Kahn (Director), Eve Everette (Assistant Director), and other SUNY Buffalo State Faculty and Staff. The Anne Frank Project visits schools, memorials, national parks, and cultural centers to participate in Rwanda's culture. Our goal is to "fill up" with stories, community reparation practices, and build a strong vocabulary for social justice topics. We then return home ready to create projects and plays that teach the tools and vocabulary for community building, conflict resolution, and identity exploration. AFP also donates a cow each year to Buffalo's sister district, Muhanga, and brings school supplies to students. If you would like to support AFP's work in Rwanda, you can make a donation here.
University students of all disciplines are welcome to apply; Previous delegations included Education, Sociology, Women and Gender Studies, Theatre, Philosophy, and Art Education. Students must fill out this online application from SUNY Buffalo State's International Education Office. Interviews will take place after the application process as well. Applications are due November 1. Our next delegation is set for June 2019.
General information meetings were held in October. If you have more questions or concerns, please contact us.
