'Beyond Borders of Chuki' is a poetic book that delves into the enchanting youth perspectives of African Great Lakes Region. Inspired by Fred Mfuranzima's travels and exploration of regional countries, the collection unveils the intricacies of peacebuilding, social development, and mental health through the lens of the vibrant youth.
