Jessica Mbanda

Programme Officer


I’ve always believed the change starts with me. So, I picked a career path that would allow me to make an impact in the world. I am driven by the desire to see my country Rwanda, and Africa achieve sustainable peace and development, and I recognize that building peace is a pre-requisite for this to happen. Through my role as a Programme Officer for Research and Knowledge Development at Interpeace Rwanda Office, I enjoy contributing my experience and skills to strengthening the capacities of societies to manage conflict in non-violent ways, and influence decision-makers to play a more effective role in supporting peacebuilding efforts.
