Friends Peace House was founded as a witness to peace, reconciliation and conflict resolution in Rwanda in December 2000, following the 1994 genocide and war, by the Evangelical Friends Church of Rwanda—a member of the Quaker branch of historically pacifist churches. Our mission is to promote peace, unity and reconciliation among the people of Rwanda and to holistically contribute to their development. The vision of our organization is to see Rwandese people living together in good relationship with one another in healthy, well-developed communities. Our core values include: Peace (Shalom), Integrity, Forgiveness, Reconciliation, Unity, Transparency, Openness and Discernment.
