ALARM (African Leadership and Reconciliation Ministries) was founded in 1994 after the Rwandan Genocide, when more than 800,000 people were killed in 100 days. The genocide demonstrated the desperate need for African leaders who are willing to put the needs of their constituents first and who will work to resolve long-standing, deep-seated tribal and ethnic conflicts. ALARM stepped into this gap and works to develop servant leaders who reconcile relationships and transform communities. ALARM has offices and national African staff in Burundi, D.R. Congo, Kenya, Rwanda, South Sudan, Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, and has trained over 100,000 leaders to date.

ALARM, in partnership with the Association des Eglises Baptistes au Rwanda (AEBR/Association of Baptist Churches in Rwanda), is working to bring economic, physical, and spiritual healing back to the community of Cyimbili, Rwanda.
