About Pilgrim Center for Reconciliation
The center's calling is to bring hope and healing by renewing individuals, restoring relationships, and revitalizing communities through the ministry of reconciliation. Their unique approach to reconciliation was first developed in Rwanda and neighboring Burundi in the aftermath of genocide as a way to rebuild trust in individuals and communities that were shattered. Over the past 20 years, they have extended this work of reconciliation to multiple countries in Africa as well as many diverse communities here in the U.S.
