And I think that the idea that you go from this horrible, racist past into the idea of inclusion, that you leave no one behind, and that includes gender equality, that you take care of your country, that you keep your place clean, I mean, there is an immense pride in this country that is just inspiring.”

STORYLINE:

UNDP Goodwill Ambassador Nikolaj Coster-Waldau traveled to Rwanda to shine a spotlight on the progress the country has made over the past two-and-a-half decades. UNDP partners with the Rwandan government and its people through programs and initiatives focused on issues such as gender equality, poverty and climate change.

“All I knew of Rwanda was that it was the scene of one of the worst tragedies in modern history: The genocide against the Tutsi people. Almost a million people killed,” said Coster-Waldau, who visited the East African nation for the first time just weeks before the 25th anniversary of the genocide against the Tutsi on April 7.
