In the wake of the genocide against the Tutsi, there were many orphan-headed households and widows, many of whom contracted HIV due to rape during the genocide. In post-genocide Rwanda, a lot has changed. genocide survivors rose from the ashes, worked hard through their uncertainty to build new lives from scratch.
However, many looking to make their future different from their past cannot afford education beyond high school, mental health care in terms of treatment and psychotherapy, and lack financial support. Our support is tailored to each case’s needs to raise the beneficiaries’ quality of life, provide self-respect and dignity, and give them hope for the future.
