Guest at Your Table

“When was the last time you saw a butterfly?” This is the question that climate advocate Ineza Umuhoza Grace asks children in Rwanda. And their answer? “I saw it on television.”

Memories of the destruction of her childhood home by rain and wind and images on the tv news of women and children displaced by flooding and erosion inspired her to study environmental engineering at the University of Rwanda. In 2020 she helped found the Loss and Damage Youth Coalition (LDYC) to address the destruction brought on by climate change. The LDYC’s purpose is to raise financing to address loss and damage and to campaign for investment in resilient infrastructure and restitution for communities devastated by the climate crisis.

As it is for many grassroots organizations, the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC) is LDYC’s first funder, meaning the UUSC is the first organization to provide LDYC with direct financial support, planting a seed that grows more funding. With UUSC’s support, LDYC is fulfilling their commitment to the global climate movement and to future generations. To learn more about Ineza’s work with LDYC, watch a video of her at this link.
