Posted in News

Around 80 young graduate students and the executive director of Bridge 2 Rwanda visited the Kigali Genocide Memorial to learn about the Genocide against the Tutsi as well as pay respects to the victims the Genocide.

The young people toured the memorial’s three exhibitions to learn more about the causes and consequences of the Genocide and later laid wreaths on a mass grave, a final resting place for more than 250,000 victims, to whom they showed respect by observing a minute of silence.

Ms Fonda Kempton, the Executive Director of Bridge 2 Rwanda, encouraged the young students to pursue honour and grace to build a peaceful future.

“The Genocide affects everyone; survivors who lost their families, and the Rwandan community in general. Through reconciliation we show honour and grace to one another.”

Ms Magnifique Mukundwa, one of Bridge 2 Rwanda graduates, reiterated the desire of the new generation to shape the future of Rwanda.

“Let us value every individual because we are all human beings. Together we can make this world a better place that future generations will be proud of. The world has suffered but the love of everyone can heal it. May what happened in Rwanda never happen again anywhere in the world. Let us continue to be a dignified ‘Agaciro’ generation.”
