The rally was organized by the Christian churches in Rwanda in close collaboration with the Ministry of Youth and ICT (MYICT) and Imbuto Foundation.

Rwanda Shima Imana derives its inspiration on a biblical text written in the book of Deuteronomy chapter 8 from verse 10 to 18. It says “When you have eaten and are satisfied praise the Lord your God for the good land he has given you …”

Speaking at the rally, Pastor Rick Warren commended Rwanda’s development and challenged the Youth to work hard and achieve the dream of the country by setting goals.

He said: “You are the new generation; God uses a man who never gives up, never fear failure if what you are doing is for the glory of God…”


The Minister of Youth and ICT, Jean Philbert Nsengimana who was present at the rally shared the vision of Youth in Rwanda and revealed that they are committed and ready to achieve those dreams.

He summarized in HAPPi Generation which is an acronym (H: Healthy, A: Attitude; Aptitude (skills, education), P: Patriotic, P: Productive and i: innovative).

“We want to see a generation who turns problems into opportunities. I hope that one day in our country everyone will get a dignified job towards the sustainable development,” Mr Nsengimana said.

The Minister further hailed Pastor Rick Warren who agreed to be a Rwandan, revealing that it is in line with the launched program called ‘Ndi Umunyarwanda’ which is a platform that drives the promise of the post genocide generation in Rwanda.

This rally was themed “Dreaming great dreams,” with support from the Rwanda Purpose Driven Ministries/P.E.A.C.E Plan is a Christian Organization and a platform of Christian Churches established in Rwanda resulting from the Friendship between the President of the Rwanda and Rev.
