On the front gate of the Agahozo-Shalom Youth Village in Rwanda, a motivational message is inscribed in Kinyarwanda and English: “If you see far, you will go far.”

This maxim resonates with artist Tanya Fredman, who volunteered at the village when it opened in 2009. Today she teaches art in northern Israel’s Yemin Orde Youth Village, the model upon which the African youth village was based.
