On Wednesday, a section of youth from Uganda, Rwanda, Tanzania and the Democratic republic of Congo joined together in Entebbe-Kampala to celebrate the day under their organization “Great Lakes youth network” for dialogue and peace.
The theme of this year’s commemoration was “End racism. Build peace”.
