Ibuka USA, a community of survivors of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda, is preparing Kwibuka 30 – the 30th commemoration of a dark period in history that saw over a million lives lost. This year, from May 24th to 26th, 2024, at South Portland High School, Maine, we gather not just to remember but to reaffirm our commitment to healing, learning, and advocating for a world free of genocide.

Kwibuka 30 is more than a commemoration; it’s a beacon of hope, connecting generations, from those who lived through the horrors to the youth born in its aftermath. This event is a crucial platform for addressing intergenerational trauma, fostering dialogue on genocide prevention, and building a compassionate society.
We aim to:
Provide a supportive environment for sharing and healing.
Foster resilience and discussions on intergenerational trauma among survivors and their descendants.
Preserve the memory of the genocide through storytelling and education.
Advocate for genocide prevention and support survivors facing ongoing challenges.
