Middlebury Davis UWC Scholars in action


Armel Nibasumba ’16

For one week during the summer of 2013, a group of 22 young Hutus and Tutsis gathered together at a peace camp in post-conflict Burundi to discuss their hopes for their country. The camp, called Twese for Peace (twese is a Kirundi word meaning “everyone”) was the brainchild of Armel Nibasumba, who grew up in Burundi and attended Waterford Kamhlaba UWC in Mbabane, Swaziland, and was now a Davis Scholar at Middlebury College.
