Life With #BeThePeace

#BeThePeaceWalk will generally be starting at 8:00AM and stops at 4:00 PM. These times and distances are ideals but there will be a room for flexibility depending on activities of each day and needs and to allow attendants to reach back their accommodation if needed. In addition to this, none will be expected to do the whole day or start at the same time with Hyppolite. One will be able to join and leave whenever needed.

Umuganda

On every last Saturday (8:00-11:00 AM) all citizens legally take part in community activity called “Umuganda”. All over the country residents are told what activities will respectively be done on such day (may include street cleaninghelping local neighbours…)

During this period (8-11.00am), all shops are closed and public transport is not available. The police ensure that the law is executed. This means that on Saturday April 27th, Saturday May 25th and Saturday June 29th we will participate in the community activities at the neighbourhoods we will have stayed previous nights. If you are planning to join on one of these days please be aware that you will need to join the team by 8:00 AM or after 12:00pm.   

On Sundays, occasionally there will be attendance to churches and mosques services, not for religious identification/practices reasons rather to listen to things we might not necessarily agree with or believe in.
