"To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover the prisoner was you".

Lewis B. Smedes

The Peace Center for Forgiveness & Reconciliation was founded in 2014 by  Kizito D. Kalima. He survived the 1994 Genocide Against the Tutsis in Rwanda. Today, Kizito’s story of unthinkable suffering, unconditional forgiveness, and transformational healing remains at the core of why we do what we do. From Genocide Awareness & Prevention, to our Peace Rebuilding Projects, we strive to spread the message of forgiveness and to achieve long lasting peace among all people.
