Ishimwe Shalom, a resilient and inspiring individual who fled from the Democratic Republic of Congo and sought refuge in Uganda in February 2018. Despite facing challenging circumstances as a refugee, Ishimwe has become a beacon of hope and inspiration for other young people. With over 5 years of experience in project management, media advocacy, and mental health counselling, he has demonstrated strong leadership skills. As the Chairperson of Rendezvous Youth Group (RYG), a Refugee Youth-Led Organisation that includes both forced migrants and vulnerable youth from the host community, Ishimwe is dedicated to empowering youth to become responsible and self-reliant individuals.

Participating in the Great Lakes’ Cross-border Youth Dialogue for Peace programme under the Projet sur le droit des réfugiés, Ishimwe is a Young Fellow passionate about empowering young forced migrants. He skillfully utilises his expertise in facilitating film screenings and employing multimedia tools to share compelling stories that shed light on the challenges faced by young refugees.
