Purpose Rwanda conducted a Reading Crown on February 1st at its headquarters in Prince House guided by the following objectives: to build a sense of self confidence among the youth of Rwanda, to provide a field of data collection to the youth of Rwanda, to provide a training field for public speaking for the youth of Rwanda

Reading crown is a session and indoor program held by Purpose Rwanda and its main focus is to create and improve a reading culture among the youth in Rwanda today.

“YOUR LIFE” was the piece of work read and it is a chapter that was picked from a book titled “PURPOSE DRIVEN LIFE,” by Pastor RICK WARREN. This book’s focus is to help people identify their purposes in life.

During the session, participants did a public reading. There were some brain storming questions proposed, and the following answers were given:

  1. How do you live a purpose driven life?
  • Be present in the now
  • Listen to understand
  • Treat yourself with self-compassion and respect
  • Practice self-awareness

These are some of the solutions we received from the youth that took part in the reading. We know that you would also have some ideas to add on and that’s what Purpose Rwanda is looking for.

  1. How do you find a purpose in life?

These are some of the answers given by the participants:

  • Read
  • Turn hurts into healing others
  • Find and build communities
  • Tell your story

 Reading is finding and discovering and Purpose Rwanda is here to help you find and discover your various purposes.

  1. What is your main purpose in life?

We all have different purposes in our lives. That’s what the youth who were present said and some of these were the answers we got from them:

“Purpose is connected to ones careers and jobs” (Deny)

“Purpose is seen in individual responsibilities to their family and friends” (Zuhla).    

 At Purpose Rwanda we believe each individual is unique with a unique ability to use to develop themselves and the communities they live in.

  1. What is the purpose of you living in the world?

This was a very interesting question and each participant had a unique answer to the question. Achieving a balance means living up to one’s potential in all facets of life. Feeling connected, inspiring others, advocating for self and others, protecting the rights of those who do not have the means, and working with others in shaping human destiny in a more appropriate way.

The reading crown session on the 14th had a great, inspiring, and motivating impact for the participants that were present and that led to a successful next session that happened one week later.
