Click here for the French version of the Soucy's most recent update.
The Soucys arrived in Rwanda in September, 2006, and are Global Field Staff working under CBM's drivers of Sustainable Community Development and Leadership Formation.
They work with the AEBR development team in the areas of needs assessment, project design, and liaising with government and other NGOs particularly in the areas of microcredit and HIV/AIDS. They also have a role in mentoring young leaders within the AEBR in integral mission. While hosting STM teams and educating Canadian churches in integral mission within the Rwandan context, they engage in global discipleship. Working with our Rwandan partner, the Soucys minister in one of the poorest countries in the world, where over eight out of ten people live on $2 a day or less. Rwanda is still affected by the lingering impact of the 1994 genocide in which an estimated 800,000 people were massacred in the space of 100 days. Microcredit and education/mentoring are two powerful tools in the fight against poverty and despair, which the Soucys are a part of.
Bruno has a B.Sc. Agriculture degree from the University of Guelph and a Certificat de Technicien Vétérinaire et d'Élevage en Milieu Tropical from the Institut de Medecine Tropical Prince Leopold in Belgium. He has worked in the areas of farm credit and management since 1981. Bruno is completely fluent in both French and English. Kathleen has a B.Sc. Agriculture degree from the University of Guelph and has completed courses in communication, marriage, family and crisis counseling towards her MA at the Canadian Theological Seminary in Saskatchewan.
