Dr James Smith

Freddy Mutanguha (Aegis Africa Representative): 
Freddy survived Rwanda’s 1994 genocide as a teenager, and as an orphaned head of household, he worked his way through school to become a leading advocate for peace and human rights education, helping to found AERG, Rwanda’s student survivors association, and going on to become Secretary General of IBUKA, the national umbrella association for Rwandan genocide survivors. Also an International Board member of the Centre for Justice and Reconciliation in Cambodia, Freddy lectures internationally on the impact of the genocide and on post-conflict reconstruction.
