Rwanda Dreaming ebook: standard edition
Twenty years after the 1994 genocide, Rwandans are creatively shaping a country and society that is uniquely their own.
Using beautifully presented data, stories and photography, Rwanda Dreaming looks at the nuts and bolts of re-building human wellbeing after conflict. It explores Rwanda’s solutions in justice, health, education, poverty, social cohesion and the environment.
It’s available in two versions: EPUB 3 (compatible with Apple iBooks and Adobe Digital Editions for Windows and Mac OS) and interactive PDF (compatible with Adobe Reader). After you checkout, PayPal will return you to RwandanStories, where you’ll be provided with download links for each version. You’ll also receive an email with the download links.
Rwanda’s story is many things. For westerners who sometimes wonder whether the decades of market-driven development, consumerism and environmental neglect may have come at too high a price, Rwanda is still – perhaps only briefly – an opportunity to time-travel back to a point where more sustainable choices can still be made.
Their story is also a reason to hope. It’s a reminder that no matter what you’ve done, no matter what has happened to you, with time and with help, there’s a good chance that the rest of your life can be OK.
There’s nothing like experiencing another culture for giving us a new perspective on our own. I hope Rwanda Dreaming whisks you off to a place outside your comfort zone – full of strange sights and sounds and where things don’t always seem to make sense. A place where you look around and say, “Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore.”
It’s a great place to learn.
