Launched in Kigali, Rwanda in August 2012, the White Rose Society underpins the mission of Aegis in preventing genocide. It sustains and grows the work, and recognises and nurtures Aegis’ increasing family of supporters.

Individuals and organisations join the White Rose Society when they raise, invest or donate monthly or annually, either to social enterprises which support income generation for Aegis, or directly to the Aegis Trust. There are tiers for membership ranging from under $1,000 to over $100,000.

The Rwanda Chapter of the White Rose Society is chaired by Robert Bayigamba, Rwanda’s former Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture, now also President of the Rwanda National Olympic Committee.

To find out more about the White Rose Society, or to have a conversation with us about the time, skills or investment you could bring to Aegis, please contact our strategic development team.
