What would you do to promote peace in the world? Each year, undergraduates from around the country have this opportunity through Davis Projects for Peace grants. Reedies Kirsten Mandala '11 and Skye MacDonald '10 taught nonviolent conflict resolution to youth in Rwanda last summer.

Kirsten collaborated with Shabab Mirza '13 and Chiara Packard '14 to put together this video talking about her definition of peace and what that meant in Rwanda, which witnessed brutal ethnic massacres in the 1990s.
