Local authorities clarified that being Rwandan should be valued rather than ethnicity. Participants said they will share the message with other residents in the villages.

Apart from Kirehe mayor, other trainers were Senator Céléstin Sebuhoro, Deputies; Berthe Mujawamariya, Anita Mutesi and Justine Mukobwa.
