Vianney snuck out of Rwanda to Burundi by crawling through forest surrounded by an army. He had a plan to join the forces that were fighting the genocide. When he got to Burundi, he forgot this plan and spent his time replenishing with food that had been donated to the refugee camp where he lived. He got his wakeup call when he was visited by a man he would never forget. The legacy he hopes to leave with his brother is that of a nation that rebuilds its cultural institutions and relies on its youth to think like heroes.

“Heroism is something that lives in all of us and comes out when we are faced with extreme challenges.” Karangwa Emmanuel

“I wanted to reclaim my own human dignity and in seeking to regain it, I saw that it was not just me, but my whole society that needed to salvage what was left of its pride. This was the foundation of my struggle.” Ndahiro Jean Marie Vianney
