96% of people who attended the latest Dialogue in the Dark workshops in June in Kigali would recommend the experience to colleagues, friends and family. The popular workshops saw over 350 people take part, including members of Parliament, champions of the Rwandan public private dialogue, the Technical, Vocational Education and Training sector and different organizations advocating for the rights of persons with disabilities, in 20 workshops over a 10 day period.
The workshops see participants taken through a series of activities and challenges by a visually impaired guide in complete darkness. This is the third time that the Dialogue in the Dark workshops have been run in Rwanda, at the Umubano Hotel in Kigali.
Feedback from the latest round of workshops has been very positive:
“I have underestimated my other senses, not only but hearing can definitely facilitate my orientation!”
“Dialogue in the Dark was an eye-opener for me! I’ve learned a lot, such as team work, communication and also how disability can be overcome! It was an amazing experience.” – Participants from the National Paralympic committee
This series of workshops were run for the first time without support from Dialogue Social Enterprise from Germany as Dialogue in the Dark seeks to become an independent business
. GIZ Eco Emploi and CBM currently provide technical and financial support as the initiative becomes more and more established in Rwanda.
