Ubuntu Center for Peace strives to bring people affected by psychological trauma and common mental disorders to a more flourishing life. We do it through a scalable, cost-effective community-based social healing model that integrates Breath-Body-Mind practices with storytelling and rituals, via Community Healing Assistants whom we recruit and train to facilitate healing practices through therapeutic groups for 16 weeks, which transition to long-term support groups to sustain healing and resilience.
Registered in the US and in Rwanda as a Nonprofit, our work is rooted in our founders’ personal stories of trauma in post-genocide Rwanda where we’re currently operating, with a vision to expand to other similar contexts.
In a world plagued by increasingly human-made and natural disasters, our mission is to bring people affected by psychological trauma and common mental disorders to a more flourishing life.
Our vision is of a healthier and more productive society free of ill-mental health, where Community Healing Assistants bring services to the doorsteps and classrooms of the most affected communities in Rwanda and across the African continent, with a particular attention to the African Great Lakes Region.
