Union University’s website recently featured an article about how one of their graduates is making great strides in a reconciliation effort in Rwanda. Andrea McDaniel, from the class of 1999, visited her alma mater in early November this year to raise awareness about the ministry she is currently involved with in Rwanda.

During her address at the Union Auxiliary luncheon, McDaniel shared with the members present about how she first visited Rwanda. Her experience there deeply shaped her and she has since founded a Christian, non-Profit organization named “As We Forgive – Rwanda Initiative“. This organization seeks to “provide healing and reconciliation” in a country still suffering from the tragic Rwandan genocide of 1995.

McDaniel is but one of many outstanding graduates from ELI 360’s partner universities who are making the education they received during their time in university count for something in the world today. What the emphasis on faith-based education at our partner universities aims to do is to ultimately produce young men and young women who are willing to dedicate their lives to improving humanity.
