Walk to Remember
Walk to Remember was conceived by the members of PLP to empower the youth of Rwanda and around the world to take a stand against genocide and mass atrocities worldwide. By using the walk as a platform to educate the youth about genocide, PLP uses knowledge as a means for prevention. An annual event promoting unity and reconciliation, the first Walk to Remember was organized by PLP on the 16th of May 2009 in Kigali, Rwanda. The event attracted over 1,200 participants. Walk to Remember 2010 met with great success, with over 6,000 participants in Rwanda alone and an average of 700 participants in other countries Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Burundi, United Kingdom, India and USA. In 2011, Walk to Remember continued to grow and spread to Canada and eight additional locations in the USA. Growth continued in 2012 to China!
Currently, Walk to Remember activities are hosted throughout four continents, in ten countries, and in over 20 locations with over 25,000 participants to-date.
