Welcome to Kiliclimb 2012

Kiliclimb 2012 is an international climb of the highest mountain in Africa, Mt. Kilimanjaro. This expedition is in support of Just Equipping, a Canadian registered non profit charitable organization dedicated to education, training, and action in the area of Restorative Justice. Since 2006, Just Equipping has provided a number of missions in Rwanda, Burundi, DR Congo, and Cameroon. Just Equipping has played a crucial role in the comfort and support of victims, the rebuilding of fractured communities, the reintegration of offenders, and the promotion of ethical and compassionate corrections and chaplaincy in the Great Lakes Region of Africa. Just Equipping shares a unique partnership with Queens University Theological College in Kingston. Because of this partnership, an International Diploma in Restorative Justice can be granted. Just Equipping was founded by Judith and Pierre Allard. Judith is currently the Executive Director of this internationally acclaimed organization. Pierre is an ordained minister and retired senior executive with the Correctional Service of Canada. Judith and Pierre, who reside in Gatineau Quebec, will be returning to Gisenyi Rwanda in January 2012 to continue their fine work in support of a number of projects sponsored by Just Equipping.

A Visit to Rwanda Part 3

 Le Petit Sanctuaire Gisenyi Rwanda

Le Petit Sanctuaire Ginenyi is a small house supported by Just Equipping that provides refuge for victims to stay when they visit Gisenyi. They come here to meet with the offenders at the Prison who have written them a letter. The sanctuary also provides a safe haven for women in need due to financial or abusive circumstances. The Sanctuary also provides overnight shelter for Chaplains visiting the area, and a meeting place for colleagues, and volunteers. The Sanctuary has 3 bedrooms and running water, however lacks an indoor kitchen making food preparation and cleanup difficult. The Sanctuary is rented for $110 US per month and will operate as long as funding is available.
