In the early 2000s, a terrible conflict raged in Central Africa claiming the lives of more than 5 million people. As many as nine African countries were drawn into the violence either directly or through proxies but the main protagonists were Rwanda, Uganda and DR Congo. While vestiges of the Great War remain, many of the countries are moving on - with Rwanda leading the way!
The idea behind the Amani Project (Amani means “Peace” in Swahili) is to help forge cross- border bonds through coffee and cycling. How? It’s simple. Together with the guiding hand of the KNWU (Dutch Cycling Federation), the Amani project aims to build (and expand) on the progress made with the Kampala Cycling Club and make smart and sustainable investments in the future of cycling in central and east Africa.
